Master's Entry Program in Nursing

Prepare for a career in Nursing

The Master’s Entry Program in Nursing (MEPN) prepares professionals with a bachelor’s degree or higher in another field for a rewarding career in Nursing. One of the few of its kind in New England, the MEPN is an intensive accelerated Master of Science in Nursing program, delivered over the course of 18 months.

Franklin Pierce’s MEPN program provides students with a general foundation in nursing as well as master’s level courses that impart the necessary skills to assume leadership roles in healthcare organizations. The program exceeds the minimum requirements of the New Hampshire Board of Nursing for classroom instruction and concurrent clinical practice hours for registered nurses, and will include master’s level online courses that meet the standards of the American Association of College of Nursing (AACN). Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and graduate with a Master of Science in Nursing.
