Clinical Nurse Specialist Graduate Programs

We offer two tracks to reach your educational and professional goals of becoming a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS).  You can choose to either complete the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)-CNS or continue to add the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)-Executive Leadership degree as well.

The advantage to Edgewood College’s program structure is that after receiving the MSN-CNS, you can seek certification and work in that capacity while continuing on with your doctoral level coursework to complete your DNP.
