Overview

University of St. Thomas has over 55 graduate degree programs that offer options for you to grow your career or advance in your field of study. With multiple programs, two campus locations and online learning, we provide opportunities and flexibility that will fit your schedule and lifestyle.

New or unique programs
The United States is experiencing a nursing shortage. The field of nursing needs more professionals who approach health care from a whole-person perspective; nurses who can lead change with systems-based thinking. 

In the proposed pre-licensure Master of Science in Nursing program, you’ll be prepared to sit for the NCLEX-RN® licensure exam and enter this high-demand field. You’ll gain real-world experience working in a clinical setting with a unique focus on interprofessional collaboration to provide culturally responsive care with clinical excellence and ingenuity. 

The program has been submitted to the accreditor and is pending approval from the Higher Learning Commission.
