As one of the oldest Catholic higher education institutions in the U.S., Seton Hall University boasts nationally-ranked graduate nursing degrees, including an online master of science in nursing in adult-gerontology. This nurse practitioner program offers a values-based curriculum that addresses healthcare needs and wellness across the lifespan.
The 48-credit program requires nine hours of core coursework in healthcare issues and policy, nursing theories, and research. Each student in the primary care specialization must complete 600 practicum hours, while the acute care track requires 675 hours.
The online program features an asynchronous delivery format. Distance learners complete classes at their convenience but must fulfill specific assignment deadlines and test dates. In addition to online coursework, students must attend three in-person immersion experiences.
