We’re proud that U.S. News & World Report has recognized our online MSN as the preeminent degree program for nurses looking to continue their education. And with the National League for Nursing naming SXU a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education, we feel that our commitment to offering the highest level of education possible to our students has been solidified. Our overall success is directly contributed to our world-class faculty and curriculum grounded in excellence,” said School of Nursing Dean Gloria Jacobson, R.N., Ph.D.

An Education Built on Care

Offered through Saint Xavier’s School of Nursing, which was founded in 1935, the online Master’s in Nursing degree program prepares professionals already working in the field with the necessary skills to adapt with the ever-evolving changes in the health care industry and take their careers to the next level.

The online program is built with flexibility in mind and offers two tracks, allowing busy nurses to focus on their career goals, continue their education and still manage their personal responsibilities.

  • Executive Leadership (Nursing Administration) – This program track is ideal for individuals looking to transition into high-level administrative roles, offering the management and leadership skills needed to effectively run departments or units.

  • Clinical Leadership – For nurses who want to continue working closely with their patients, the clinical nurse leader track teaches how to effectively advocate for patients, while developing the strategies necessary for coordinating with health care departments.
