Secondary Specialties

Master of Science in Nursing students may choose to also earn a Nursing Administration Specialty or Nursing Education Specialty in addition to the primary specialties offered. These two secondary specialties are not offered in conjunction with the MSN alone; students must earn a primary specialty as part of the MSN program and then may continue on to complete the coursework for the Nursing Administration or Nursing Education secondary specialty.

Nurses who already have an MSN and specialty from APU or another institution may enroll in the Nursing Administration or Nursing Education secondary specialty as a post-master’s certificate.
