Nursing - GCS

Tiffany Greer, Ph.D., R.N., Associate Dean, School of Nursing

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, family nurse practitioners, chief nursing officers, consultants, supervisors, and academic nurse educators.

The purpose of Olivet’s graduate program leading to an MSN degree is to provide a curriculum plan for guiding the student 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.
