You will find yourself in great demand to fill established and emerging roles that allow nurses to focus on a variety of practice areas, such as geriatrics, pediatrics, public health, administration, informatics, forensics, and systems improvement.

The program is offered primarily online by faculty at the WVU Health Sciences Center at our Morgantown and Charleston campuses. Courses are offered via a variety of web-based modalities both in asynchronous and synchronous distance education formats. Students will be required to attend a special session in Morgantown or Charleston approximately five times through the assessment course and two days in practicum for FNP students. During semesters involving nursing practice hours, monthly meetings are held online. Special sessions for PNP students are held in Morgantown for approximately one week during the assessment course.
Students are admitted to a specific track and progression plan. Admission to some tracks is dependent on an adequate cohort to deliver the track. Changes to the track or progression plan are only allowed based on space available. If for any reason a student must leave the program, their ability to return to the program will be based on space available at the time of request and is not guaranteed.
After completing requirements for the MSN degree, students will have the ability to sit for advanced practice certification and are prepared to offer care at the advanced practice level to select populations.
