Nursing - SGCS


Tiffany Greer, Ph.D., M.S.N., RN, Director of Nursing Programs, Associate Professor

A master’s degree forms the basis for advanced nursing practice, continued professional development, and further graduate study in a marketplace that shows increasingly high demand for these professionals, as directors and assistant directors of nursing, clinical specialists, nurse practitioners, consultants, supervisors, head nurses, in-service educators, and faculty members.

The purpose of Olivet’s graduate program leading to an MSN degree is to provide a curriculum plan for guiding the learner with the intention of broadening the theoretical knowledge base of the learner in preparation for a leadership role and/or doctoral study. The nurse at the master’s level develops, tests, and evaluates concepts relevant to nursing; critically examines concepts and theories in relation to health issues; initiates nursing research; and practices nursing in a leadership role. MSN graduates are expected to be (a) ethical, moral, and spiritual professionals who serve as leaders and change agents; (b) life-long learners committed to personal, professional, and spiritual growth; and (c) individuals capable of providing leadership through service to God and humanity in advanced practice roles and settings.
