Master Requirements for Nursing


College of Nursing
nursing.utah.edu
10 S. 2000 E., Salt Lake City, UT, 84112
801-581-3414

Minimum Degree Hours: 30 - 45

Admission to the MS program is limited and selective. Admission cannot be guaranteed to all individuals who meet the minimum requirements.

Minimum Admission Requirements

The College of Nursing strongly recommends that applicants first attend a College of Nursing Graduate Information Session before submitting their application.

Other Important Information related to the MS Program:

  1. This program is designed specifically for individuals who have earned a baccalaureate degree in nursing and have a valid RN license.
  2. Consistent with University policy, students entering the MS must have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
  3. Students will follow the regular University of Utah Graduate School application processes and deadlines.

Required Prerequisite Course

Prerequisite courses require a B grade or better and may be completed during the admission process. We strongly recommend that, when possible, applicants have their prerequisite courses completed before applying to the program, or while they are in the application process. It is not recommended that you wait until the summer semester before you begin the program, if you are admitted.

Upper Division Physiology

If you graduated with your BS degree program in nursing over 5 years ago (counted back from the start of your graduate program) then you are required to take an upper division level (3000 or higher) physiology course prior to starting the graduate program.

If you graduated from a RN-BS program and did not take an upper division level course in physiology or pathophysiology then you are required to take an upper division physiology course (e.g., NURS 5905 Clinical Physiology) prior to starting the graduate program.

Note: The College of Nursing offers an upper division level course, NURS 5905 Clinical Physiology (2 credits) to help applicants meet this requirement. NURS 5905 is an online course, offered Spring and Summer semesters, that provides a review of basic physiology of the major organ systems and an introduction to current advanced topics in physiology. Applicants who have not completed this prerequisite can apply to the graduate program while in the process of taking the prerequisite courses.

Application

Application deadline: January 15

Applications received after the deadline will not be reviewed. Applications are available fall of the previous year.

The College of Nursing strongly recommends that applicants first attend a College of Nursing Graduate Information Session before submitting their application.
