Rhode Island College
This school describes its MSN program as a unique combination of liberal arts and nursing education, one that successfully melds intellectual growth with professional development. Students can choose to specialize in one of four areas: gerontology with an acute care emphasis, nurse anesthesia, public health, and nursing course management. Admission to the program is competitive and each application requires at least three professional references. A part-time track is available for those students willing to juggle school and career.
