Students who enter the MSN program through either the traditional RN to MSN option or the RN to MSN Bridge option can enjoy the same career outlook as all Loyola New Orleans MSN graduates – as a nurse leader, educator, or family nurse practitioner. You can immediately use the skills taught throughout the program to elevate your level of patient care, leadership skills, or better prepare others to be nurses themselves. You will graduate with a renewed spirit of independent inquiry, enhanced critical thinking and communication skills, and the tools needed to advance within the health care industry.
The three MSN concentrations offered as part of the MSN curriculum — Family Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Leadership (formerly Health Care Systems Management) and Nurse Educator — are designed to further expand your knowledge in your chosen area of study and can help position you for job roles that may require an advanced understanding and specific level of subject-matter expertise.
