Two new degree programs in nursing at Miami University were approved by the board of trustees at its regular business meeting held Monday, Nov. 30.
A Masters of Science in Nursing and a Doctor of Nursing Practice will add 50 new courses within the College of Liberal Arts and Applied Science at the regional campuses. The master’s program includes three areas of study concentrations: nurse practitioner, nurse leadership and nurse educator. The doctor of nursing will provide coursework to prepare nurses for advanced leadership and patient care.
These are two of the newest emerging and in-demand degrees that Miami is launching to meet changing workforce needs. This year the university rolled out plans for 14 new undergraduate degrees, 12 graduate offerings, and 20 certificates and micro-credentials.
