Smiling at Patient

Much More Opportunity

If you’re interested in a nursing program that combines your compassion for patients with working knowledge about the latest medical technologies, Morehead State University is the place for you. The Department of Nursing at MSU will prepare you for a diverse range of careers in nursing. Based in the Center for Health, Education and Research (CHER) building, the Department of Nursing offers two-year and four-year RN certification programs and post-certification programs, as well as online RN to BSN post-licensure completion program.

Our department has clinical affiliation contracts with more than 50 healthcare institutions across the state of Kentucky, including health departments, hospitals hospices, long-term care facilities and more. These affiliations serve to augment the learning opportunities you will have at MSU. After you graduate, you will have both the knowledge and real-world experience to enter into an exciting, rewarding career in healthcare.

As a student in MSU’s nursing program, you will study in facilities which employ hands-on learning with the most up-to-date equipment, high-fidelity patient simulators and live actor-clients. At Morehead State, you become the nurse by using what you learn in the classroom to diagnose and treat patients in a real-world setting. Thanks to MSU’s small class sizes, you will receive personal, one-on-one attention from faculty members and guidance from the moment you apply thanks to the department’s two academic counseling coordinators.

Convenient Ways to Learn
The Department of Nursing offers working professional students a number of convenient options to complete their degrees, including:

• An online RN to BSN completion program for Registered Nurses (RN) holding an associate degree in nursing.

• A face-to-face bachelor’s degree nursing program at MSU at Prestonsburg. (We are no longer accepting cohorts.)

• A paramedic-to-RN completion program at the MSU at Mt. Sterling satellite campus and at our main campus.
