The Division of Nursing, School of Health Professions, will administer the graduate program.
This program will offer a convenient and flexible schedule with on-line classes and 5 in-person intensives. The University is working with multiple state boards of nursing and the PSJH system to develop outstanding clinical placements within PSJH. Clinical placement opportunities are being being explored in the PSJH system located in Alaska, Montana, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
