University of Providence: Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Program

In January 2019, the University of Providence (UP) started a new Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program. The first concentration is focused on nursing education. The program has 15 students in the first two cohorts and enrollment is available in January and August each year.

On Oct 2, 2019, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) conducted an Accreditation Survey for the MSN Program on the UP campus in Great Falls, MT. The survey team assessed the design of the program, curriculum, practicums, faculty members, students, and program outcomes as part of their review process. Following this review, the program received a recommendation from the survey team for a full accreditation with no findings or contingencies. The final decision will be made in May 2020. At that point, the accreditation will be established as of the first day of the survey (Oct 2, 2019).

The MSN program runs over seven semesters (26 months) with students taking one 8-week course per term (or two courses per semester). The program features two practicums for a total of 135 hours.
