Graduates of the Direct Master's Entry program change their careers and make an immediate impact as nurse practitioners in Boston and across the country.
Intended for students with bachelor’s degrees in disciplines other than nursing, the Connell School’s accelerated Direct Master’s Entry (MSE) program prepares students for fulfilling careers with the full array of benefits of our traditional master’s program: exceptional academics, invaluable clinical experiences, mentorship from prominent scholars and clinicians, and a range of resources that strengthen students’ knowledge and expand their professional horizons.
CSON was one of the first schools to offer an accelerated master’s program, which allows graduates to enter advanced practice nursing more quickly—saving them time and tuition costs. Students can complete the degree in as few as two years:
- Year 2: During the second year, students complete courses in their specialties and take classes with both Connell School traditional MS students and other MSE students.
