Overview

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with School Nurse Services Credential (SNSC) prepares nurses to be effective practitioners of school health. Throughout the program, students develop theoretical and practical expertise in nursing and education applied to basic health services in the public schools (K-12).

In addition to WASC and CCNE accreditation, the SNSC is approved by the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission.
