Nurse Practitioner Program

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with Nurse Practitioner (NP) specialties offers the following options:

  • Adult-Gerontology Primary Care NP
  • Family NP
  • Nurse Midwife
  • Psychiatric Mental Health NP
  • Women’s Health NP

Students enrolling in one of these NP specialties should familiarize themselves with the general MSN coursework, as those course requirements will need to be completed before students may begin the NP specialty curriculum. Nurses who already have an MSN from the University of Cincinnati may enroll in a Post-Master’s Certificate program to obtain their NP specialty.
