The Kean University MSN in School Nursing program is the only school nurse graduate program in central New Jersey. The School Nursing option builds on the foundation courses for community health nursing and its focus on the transcultural dimension of the service makes it unique among graduate school nurse programs within the state.
The MSN school nurse program educates RNs with bachelor degrees to be well-qualified and prepared to respond to the health care needs of the state’s school districts as either instructional school nurses, eligible to teach health in the classroom, and/or supervisors of school health services, eligible to manage health programs for school districts. Students who complete the program will qualify for certification as instructional school nurse and/or supervisor of school health services.
