Based in Spokane, Gonzaga University is a Jesuit liberal arts college that focuses primarily on undergraduate education. However, the growth of Gonzaga's online school allows students to earn an online master of science in nursing (MSN).
Gonzaga offers two main online graduate nursing options: an RN-to-MSN and an MSN for nurses with a bachelor of science in nursing. The online MSN has three track options: nursing leadership in healthcare (NLH), family nurse practitioner (FNP), and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP). The nursing leadership in healthcare track is entirely online except for one two-day on-campus immersion. The other two tracks offer courses online, though students must earn in-person clinical experience.
