MEAGN program offers second degree nurses a graduate degree

Are you completing your degree this year and are considering a career in health care? The McAuley School of Nursing has an innovative program that provides those with a bachelor’s degree the opportunity to earn a master’s degree while preparing to become a Registered Nurse. If you are finishing your degree in the Spring of 2021, you may be eligible for the Master’s Entry Advanced Generalist Nursing program (MEAGN).

The MEAGN program consists of 55 credits of coursework to be completed over 4 ½ consecutive 15-week semesters. Innovative combinations of prelicensure nursing content and master’s level courses, along with integrated clinical experiences in the metropolitan Detroit area are features of this comprehensive program. The program is a combination of online, hybrid and in-person course work that includes integrated in-person class and clinical learning experiences (subject to Michigan Department of Health requirements for instruction).

Successful MEAGN students:

  • honor the human condition
  • demonstrate compassion, empathy and caring.
  • value social justice, service to the poor and underserved.
  • are committed fully to the program.
  • are motivated, driven, resilient and focused.
