www.miami.edu/nursing


The School of Nursing and Health Studies offers three graduate degrees: the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Nursing.
If admitted to an MSN, DNP or PhD program, all students must successfully pass a background check which includes fingerprinting and drug screening, and must also provide proof of current immunizations. These requirements must be met prior to registering for courses.
Note that courses and policies are subject to change throughout the academic year.  Please refer to the 2012-2013 Student Handbook for the applicable curriculum and progression policies.
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN NURSING

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program is designed for professional nurses holding a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing (BSN).  Registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees in other fields are also eligible to apply for admission.  Specialty tracks focus on selected areas of advanced practice nursing and nursing education consisting of 30 to 100 semester credits. The degree requirements may be completed in three to seven semesters of full-time study depending on the specialty. Part-time study is also available for the Acute Care/Adult Nurse Practitioner, Family Nurse Practitioner and Nurse Education tracks. MSN tracks are lock-step and students must successfully complete a semester to progress to the next semester. Further information about each program may be obtained from the Office of Student Services, School of Nursing and Health Studies, University of Miami, P.O. Box 248153, Coral Gables, FL 33124-3850; by visiting us on-line at: http://www.miami.edu/sonhs/index.php/sonhs/academics/master_programs/, e-mail Nursinggrad@miami.edu or calling (305) 284-4325. 

The MSN Program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), One DuPont Circle NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036, (202) 887-6791.

GRADUATE STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

Students in the School of Nursing and Health Studies are responsible for meeting the degree requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to comply with all the provisions of the Bulletin and written changes to the program of study. Students are provided assistance by advisors and faculty members. Requests for deviation from the program of study or school requirements are granted only by written approval from the Dean. Students who are in violation of the provisions of this Bulletin may be withdrawn unilaterally by appropriate School officials from classes, deleted as Nursing and Health Studies students or have a stop placed upon their future enrollment. The school reserves the right to change academic requirements to include course offerings to ensure that students are receiving the latest knowledge. Classes may be held on weekdays or weekends, and will be listed as such in the course schedule.  Changes are transmitted by written notice in the current year of the School of Nursing and Health Studies Master’s Handbook located at www.miami.edu/sonhs or by the Dean.

PROGRESSION POLICY

In order for MSN students to progress through their programs to completion, the academic policy is as follows:

1. Any graduate student who receives a “C” or lower in a nursing course will be dismissed from his or her program.

2. A grade of “B-” or “C+” for a course is below graduate standards, and the student must repeat that course. However, a student may only repeat one course, one time.

3. A passing grade in all clinical experiences is required to pass a course having a clinical component (generally listed as a “lab section” by UM). Students who are not making satisfactory progress may also receive an academic alert at mid-semester or mid-course. 

4. All grades are included in the computation of the UM overall grade point average including those that are failed or repeated.

DOCTOR OF NURSING PRACTICE
The Doctor in Nursing Practice (DNP) requires 38 credits of coursework beyond the master’s degree. The DNP degree is a practice-focused doctorate designed for nurses seeking a terminal degree in nursing practice. Classes are held one weekend per month—all day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The DNP Program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), One DuPont Circle NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036, (202) 887-6791.
The outcome objectives for graduates of the DNP program are to:

● Integrate knowledge, theories, and concepts from the biophysical, psychosocial, analytical, and organization sciences to develop ethical health care systems and new frontiers for nursing practice that addresses health care disparities

● Evaluate research methods and findings to create an evidence-base for nursing practice and health care delivery systems that reflect best practices and alleviate health care disparities

● Synthesize knowledge gained from traditional and innovative learning methods to lead quality, cost-effective health care collaborations addressing health care disparities.

● Demonstrate expert clinical judgment and knowledge of health care systems to design, deliver and evaluate evidence-based care interventions to reduce health care disparities

● Model expert nursing practice and serve as mentors to nursing colleagues in their efforts to improve nursing practice and health care systems

● Employ knowledge of health care policy and economics to develop and evaluate programs to address health care disparities


DNP ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

●  Interviews will be scheduled as requested by faculty
●  Documentation of completion of a minimum of 440 precepted clinical hours or supervised residency hours in master’s level program. An applicant who cannot provide such documentation may submit a portfolio for evaluation of equivalent clinical hours. Contents of the portfolio should include:
• Descriptions of any supervised internship or residency experiences in their master’s program
• Descriptions of any supervised internship or residency experiences they may have had after their master’s programs
• Descriptions of nursing practice-related supervised projects in their master’s programs

Final assignment of portfolio clinical hours is non-negotiable and is based on the level and nature of the supervision, the type and applicant’s responsibilities in the project.
