Graduate Programs

The University of Maine School of Nursing developed its first graduate program in 1992 and the initial group of graduate students received their MSN in May 1994.  For the first years, the MSN program focused on preparing the nurse for the advanced professional role of family nurse practitioner (FNP).   Later, in response to the diverse graduate education needs of Maine nurses, our graduate program expanded to prepare nurses for professional roles such as nurse educator, nurse administrator, or other professional role.  Graduate program faculty are expert practitioners in their field.

The University of Maine Master of Science in Nursing program is accreditated by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)
