What is the application deadline?
Regis University's MS in Nursing program has a rolling admission deadline; we accept applications up to the start date of the program but recommend applying sooner than later. The program starts three times a year in Spring (early January), Summer (May) and Fall (late August).
What are the prerequisites for the program?
There are no prerequisites to begin the online nursing curriculum, however, applicants must have completed a statistics course with a grade of C or better prior to enrolling in NR 602 - Research in Nursing.
What if I have not taken a statistics course?
You are eligible to apply, but admitted students must have a completed statistics course prior to taking NR 602 in the program. Regis University offers several statistics courses, and offers one specific to healthcare professionals (MT 274 Statistics for Health Professionals). We allow students to enroll in these courses as a non-degree seeking student. Additionally the course can be taken at any regionally accredited college or University including community colleges. For those in the Colorado area looking at the community college offerings, MAT 135 Introduction to Statistics will fulfill this requirement.
If you're interested in enrolling in this course at Regis University, complete the 'Non Degree Application' and contact your admission counselor to register.
Do you require an academic reference from a college instructor?
No. We require three letters of reference on the forms provided in the application. One reference must be from your current employer or supervisor and the other two can be either professional or academic.
How long do I have to complete my degree?
Students have a total of 5 years to complete all degree requirements.
How long does it typically take to complete the program?
The master’s degree in nursing leadership program is five semesters of full-time study completed in 1.5 years. Students are encouraged to complete the program in the designed timeframe, although variations in schedule can be made as needed. We know life happens.
When do the classes meet?
If you choose to complete the hybrid program format, courses meet one evening per week, from 5:00-9:00 p.m.
Online students have the flexibility to complete weekly assignments asynchronously (i.e., no pre-determined login times).
Will I have an Academic Advisor?
Yes, once you start class you will be assigned an Academic Advisor. Your assigned advisor will work with you throughout the entire program and will be available via email and phone. Their primary role is to help you with course sequencing, to ensure you are meeting all degree requirements, to answer general questions and provide support.
Can I take more than one class in an 8-week term?
New students are only allowed to take one course during their first 8-week term. If a grade of A- or better is earned in this course, students are allowed to register for additional courses during the following terms if they desire.
