Graduate Program

La Roche University offers two avenues for you to pursue leadership roles in today’s nursing profession: an Entry Level Master of Science, and a fully online Master of Science in Nursing program.

Entry Level Master of Science in Nursing

Earn your master’s degree in nursing in as few as 20 months through a unique program designed for students who want to become a nurse and who already hold a bachelor’s degree in another field.

Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared to take the National Council Licensing Exam for Registered Nurses and enter the profession as an MSN-qualified nurse without specialization. The degree also establishes a foundation for post-master’s degree certification programs. Learn more about La Roche’s ELMSN program.

The ELMSN program is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and is pending accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.


Online Master of Science in Nursing

The fully online Master of Science in Nursing program builds on the knowledge that you learned in your bachelor’s program, helping you develop into a critical thinker and scholarly leader. You may choose between three concentrations:

  • Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL)
