Nursing and healthcare are consistently evolving with new technology, research and legislation.

Today, public health organizations, hospitals, clinics, universities and other healthcare settings are recruiting nurses with advanced education to fill key roles.

At Webster University, Department of Nursing students learn from professionals in the healthcare field and acquire knowledge in class that can be applied the next day at work, and the small faculty-to-student ratio ensures close and individualized academic advising. Students can establish credit for prior nursing education and/or nursing knowledge and skills, and Webster’s corporate partnerships allow the nursing program to extend tuition discounts to MSN students employed by partners.
