Nursing School Programs

Purdue Global's nursing school has helped thousands of students advance their careers with our comprehensive online nursing programs: Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Master of Science in Nursing, and Doctor of Nursing Practice. Each flexible program is taught by experienced practitioners and designed for working nurses who manage jobs and families.

Ready to take the first step toward a rewarding career in nursing? Our Associate of Science in Nursing at our regional locations in Iowa and Nebraska is designed to help students develop the knowledge and professional nursing clinical skills necessary to direct and manage patient care. We also offer a Prelicensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing at our regional locations in Augusta and Omaha, which emphasizes professional growth and is designed to provide the foundation for progressively higher levels of nursing practice.

The baccalaureate degree in nursing, master's degree in nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice program, and the post-graduate APRN certificate program at Purdue University Global are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (www.ccneaccreditation.org).
