We are also proud to offer a master of science in nursing degree with a family nurse practitioner program concentration. This program is hybrid with most courses delivered 100% online. This program can be completed in as little as 8 terms over approximately 24 months. The MSN program is a candidate for accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
The Mission of NEIT is to provide specialized degree programs which prepare students for careers in the health care, technical and professional fields. All of our Nursing faculty have had years of practical experience in the Nursing field, and bring that experience into the classroom and the laboratories for the benefit of our students. Our Simulation(Sim) Labs feature manikins that are programmed to act like real patients. Based on their experiences in the Sim Labs, students enter the clinical field work sites feeling comfortable that they understand the skill sets needed to take care of their patients. Associate degree graduates are prepared to sit for the national licensing examination (NCLEX), and are prepared for employment as entry level nurses in the general health care communities.
Today's health care environment requires nurses with baccalaureate degrees. NEIT offers the first fully online RN to BSN program in Rhode Island which you can enter seamlessly after you complete the associate degree in Nursing. The RN to BSN program was flexibly designed to address the needs of the working nurse, and can be completed in as little as 18 months. Click here to learn more about NEIT's RN to BSN Online Program.
Embarking on a nursing career is exciting and challenging. At NEIT, we will provide you the opportunity to accomplish this challenge.
