Starting in fall 2017, Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) is partnering with the Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) University Consortium to offer a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program with a Leadership in Nursing Education concentration in Hanover.

The MSN program is designed as a cohort model with accelerated course delivery for professionally registered nurses with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. The program will offer primarily face-to-face instruction, on-site at the AACC at Arundel Mills Regional Higher Education Center. 

Courses meet on the same day at the same time throughout the cohort to facilitate work-life schedules. Students typically take 6 credits a term (one seven- or eight-week course at a time), making them eligible for federal financial aid. The 36-credit program can be completed in 21 months. 

NDMU is an AACC University Consortium partner, and the long-standing MSN program provides a niche in nursing education because of the infusion of caring science emphasized throughout the curriculum. The program educates students to transform nursing and health care through authentic presence; caring connections with patients, students, colleagues and the discipline of nursing; and by preserving care and compassion as the ethical foundation of nursing practice and scholarship.

The program prepares students to foster the development of caring and compassion as nurse educators in academic and/or clinical practice settings. Students learn and practice skills essential to teach traditional and nontraditional learners, using a variety of teaching strategies and technology.
