Master of Nursing Header

The School of Nursing and Health Studies offers graduate study leading to a Master of Nursing degree. The schedule of classes is based on a cohort model with students admitted each fall. This model helps students build a strong network of nursing colleagues while also learning from others’ diverse nursing experiences and academic goals.

Applicants most often pursue professional interests in:

  • Leadership and Management
  • Nursing Education
  • Global, Community, and Public Health

At the master's level, the program is designed to meet the needs of experienced nurses interested in advanced nursing roles in a variety of settings. The program provides students the opportunity for study of advanced nursing through courses and field applications of nursing theory, translational research, and individual, family, community, and systems adaptations. At UW Bothell you will find faculty and staff exceptionally committed to students and the development of a program that meets your needs as a nursing leader.

The MN Program is for nurses with a BSN who desire to continue their education. Experienced nurses with an RN and a Bachelor's degree in another discipline are also eligible to apply. Consult the Admission without a BSN section for details.

As part of the University of Washington School of Nursing, it is important to note that the UW Bothell MN degree focuses on leadership and many advanced roles in nursing, but it does not prepare a student for certification as a nurse practitioner or as a clinical nurse specialist. Connect to the UW School of Nursing for more information on degrees for these specific roles.
