Jacksonville University Expands Online Course Offerings for Two World- Class Master of Science in Nursing Programs Tampa, FL – July 7, 2010 – On May 3, Jacksonville University (JU) turned advanced nursing education from dream to reality for RNs nationwide by offering two of its renowned Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree programs in a 100% online classroom – a move that combines world-class instruction with 24/7 convenience. Today, JU is pleased to debut two new online graduate nursing courses as part of its ongoing commitment to help working RNs earn career-enhancing MSN degrees online. Whether they choose to enroll in the MSN in Nursing Education or MSN in Nursing Administration online, students are assured of the highest quality education through JU, which is consistently ranked as a top master’s-level university in the South by U.S. News and World Report. JU’s online MSN degree programs feature two new courses that will be offered during the Fall 1 session: Management of Information Technology and Nursing Theory and Research II. The new courses – like the entire online MSN curriculum – are taught by doctoral degree-holding professors. They are the same professors who teach the university’s acclaimed MSN program on campus, and have been selected for their ability to meet the educational needs of adult learners. These unique online MSN programs eliminate barriers to advanced degrees by offering students the convenience of classes that fit into their busy lives. They are ideal for nurses whose schedule, location or other limitations have prevented them from pursuing their higher education goals. New JU students have the flexibility of enrolling in up to two online nursing courses per session. By successfully completing two courses each session, RNs can accelerate their professional development and earn an MSN degree online in as little as two years. Graduates of JU’s online MSN degree program have respected credentials that empower them to progress in their healthcare careers, earn greater compensation and attain the prestige of a Nurse Educator or Nurse Administrator role.
