Nursing is an exciting profession that is responsive to changes in health care. An increasing focus on health promotion and maintenance, and technological advancements in the treatment of illness, has placed new demands on health care providers. Professional nurses are needed to provide evidence-based solutions to critical problems, improve patient safety through risk reduction, and illness and disease management at the point of care.
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) at Grand Valley is delivered in a hybrid format and prepares professional nurses as advanced generalists to serve as leaders within clinical microsystems (patient care units/settings) in a reformed health care system. Students who complete the MSN are eligible to take the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) examination.
