Master of Science in Nursing Hardin-Simmons University
The Patty Hanks Shelton School of Nursing graduate nursing programs prepare students to assume roles in various health care agencies and organizations as a result of advanced preparation in health care delivery as advanced family nurse practitioners, researchers, educators, or nurse executives. Many of our MSN students are also interested in our Post-Master’s Certificate for APNs program.
Building upon a baccalaureate nursing education and the philosophy of PHSSN, faculty believe that the development of critical thinking, Christian principles and development, communication, clinical skills, creativity, and self-direction are essential elements in graduate nursing education. Through the educational process, faculty seek to promote social, cultural, and ethnic diversity, believing it enriches professional growth and development.
The collaborative educational process between the faculty and students promotes progressive mastery and increases learner maturity. Implicit in advanced practice nursing is accepting accountability for lifelong learning, professional growth, Christian principles and development, competent practice, and effective leadership.
