Welcome to the Department of Nursing’s
website at Morehead State University! We are happy that you are interested our
nursing programs! We have offered the
Associate Degree RN program since 1971. In 1986 the BSN degree program was
initiated and both traditional and RN to BSN completion students were admitted.
Additionally we have a Paramedic to Associate Degree Nursing Program (ADNP)
completion program. The Department of Nursing is working toward offering a
Doctor of Nurse Practice (DNP) program in the future.
Both programs are approved through the
Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN). The ADNP is accredited through the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission (NLNAC). A smaller cohort of ADNP students are taught
at the Mt. Sterling satellite campus. The Baccalaureate Nursing
Program at Morehead State University is accredited by the
Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530,
Washington DC 20036, (202)887-6791. There is an online RN to BSN completion
program for Registered nurses (RN) holding the Associate Degree or Diploma in
Nursing. Additionally, there is a
face-to-face BSN program in Prestonsburg at the MSU satellite campus. The curricula consist of courses from the
humanities, natural and social sciences, mathematical sciences and nursing
theory/science. The Department of Nursing has clinical affiliation contracts
with over 60 health care institutions across the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Large urban, teaching and research medical
centers, community hospitals, hospices, long-term care facilities, public
health department among other clinical service agencies augment the clinical
learning opportunities for our nursing students.
Students are advised by two (2) Academic
Counseling Coordinators (ACC) and also are guided by faculty advisors once
admitted to the nursing program.

employ high tech teaching-learning strategies throughout the nursing curricula.
In addition to the nursing faculty,
there are two clinical laboratory coordinators, a simulation specialist and an
Information Technology and Multi-Media Lab (MML) Specialist.
Promotion of critical thinking and clinical
skills acquisition occurs in our STAT (Simulation through Advanced Technology)
Nursing Labs. Our 44 bed nursing unit consists of four 10-bed labs and 4
specialty units, where students work with low, medium, and high fidelity
manikins along with live actor-clients.
