Top 5 Reasons to Earn Your MSN at Spalding

Convenience. History. Excellence.

Earning your MSN should be convenient, not a hassle. That’s why we offer a flexible schedule and the ability to complete your degree entirely online. Our MSN program–the oldest family nurse practitioner program in the city–is deeply connected to Louisville’s thriving medical community. We take pride in the success of our graduates, who leave our program prepared to pass their board examinations and excel in the field. If that’s not enough, here are the top 5 reasons to consider getting your MSN at Spalding:

Same faculty as on campus

Our faculty is our faculty. We do not hire from outside our university for our online courses. Whether you are taking classes online or on campus, you’ll find the consistency in both the course content and the personal attention from your professors.

A stellar pass rate for more than 20 years

Historically, more than 96% of our MSN graduates pass their board certification on the first try. That pass rate is greater than the national average.

Flexibility to earn your degree while you work

Don’t completely disrupt your life to advance your career. Our online program allows you to continue to work while taking classes.

Accelerated completion time

Online courses allow you to earn your degree in a shorter amount of time? We also offer options for part-time and full-time study.

Expertise that you can apply immediately

All of our faculty are in clinical practice on a weekly basis and they bring that expertise into the classroom. The skills you learn from them and in your own clinical training can be immediately applied in the field.

And here a few other things to consider…

Online & hybrid courses

We offer three MSN tracks:

  • family nurse practitioner – hybrid
  • nurse educator – entirely online
  • nurse leadership – entirely online

Our mission to meet the needs of the times

We are the first certified compassionate university in the world. Caring for others is just part of who we are.
