Preparing advanced practitioners of tomorrow to meet the challenges of a changing health care environment.

Welcome to the Wilson School of Nursing Graduate Nursing Programs. We currently have two graduate nursing programs: Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and Family Nurse Practitioner. Each track offers a master's degree in nursing (MSN) or post-graduate certificate program, and is directed by a graduate coordinator who will be happy to assist you with any questions you might have.

Midwestern State University Wilson School of Nursing utilizes doctoral prepared and advance practice nurses who are experts in their fields to ensure the highest quality educational experience. Our programs focus on the development of refined analytical skills, broad-based perspectives, enhanced abilities to articulate viewpoints and positions, as well as the ability to integrate theory with practice and to utilize research findings in advanced practice roles.

For information concerning graduate nursing degrees, please contact the coordinator for your field of interest. We look forward to working with you as a potential student in our program.
