Master of Nursing


Are your interests across several specialties? Want to design a program that meets your individual needs?  The General Track is for you! Students who choose the Master of Nursing general track can work in a wide range of advanced nursing roles, including population health, global health, informatics, and other specialties.

In this track, you select elective coursework to meet your individual academic and professional goals, in consultation with your adviser and graduate chair. One popular option is focusing in Population Health via our partnership with the UW Seattle DNP Population Health & Systems Leadership program. You can select electives from both our Nurse Educator and Administrative Leadership coursework or choose courses from programs across the University of Washington and beyond.

Students have the first year in the program to determine a pathway (applicants do not need to have decided on a pathway when applying). View the part-time (4-year) and full-time (2-year) program schedules.
