Midwestern announces new graduate nursing degree programs

Glendale campus will debut new tracks in 2021

The College of Health Sciences at Midwestern University, 19555 N. 59th Ave., Glendale, has received approval from the Arizona State Board of Private Post-Secondary Education to implement four new graduate nursing programs.

Midwestern now offers a Master of Science in Nursing program and a Post-Master’s Certificate track with an Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner concentration (both programs were also recently approved by the Arizona State Board of Nursing); a Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Nurse Leadership in Global Health; and a Doctor of Nursing Practice program with two specialty tracks.

The first track is designated for actively working Adult-Gerontology Primary Care nurse practitioners electing to complete a doctoral degree in their area of specialty, and the second track is designed for master’s-prepared nursing leaders aspiring to become doctoral-prepared nurse executives.

All graduate nursing programs are scheduled to matriculate in fall 2021 except for the Post-Master’s Certificate, which is scheduled to matriculate in summer 2022.

Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioners  are advanced practice nurses specializing in the delivery of primary care to clients ages 13 through end of life. Nurse practitioners are instrumental in addressing demands due to increasing primary care provider shortages, especially within vulnerable or aging communities, underserved populations, and remote areas.

“Our graduate nursing programs come at a time when advanced practice nurses and nurse leaders are in high demand,” Graduate Nursing Programs for the College of Health Sciences program director Misty L. Pagán stated in a news release. “Our objective is to graduate master’s and doctoral level nursing professionals who will deliver high quality, affordable, equitable, and culturally competent client-centered care.”
