M.S. Degree Requirements
The Direct Entry Master's in Nursing Program is a five-semester, 68-credit, full-time course of study, including two summers. Students are provisionally admitted to the M.S. program. Provision is removed once the RN license is received. Students are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN after completing four semesters of accelerated study, a total of 59 credits. Students are eligible to take the CNL (Clinical Nurse Leader) certification examination upon completion of the curriculum. The curriculum design begins in January and includes two summer sessions. The department of nursing subscribes to the practice that selected nursing courses may be offered via an online or hybrid online format.
Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) track
The University of New Hampshire Department of Nursing is pleased to collaborate with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) in the development of the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) track.

Students conclude their CNL master's preparation in the capstone course, NURS 958, Clinical Nurse Leader Capstone.
