The Leadership and Management track of the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program from MSOE, with its unique blend of nursing and business concepts, will equip graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to function effectively in the health care environment. MSOE’s MSN program is based on the fact that nurses at mid-management, executive levels and nurse entrepreneurs must have the capacity to manage financial resources, manage human capital, analyze large data sets, understand complex organizational systems, and ensure quality and safety, all through the lens of nursing practice. The curriculum in the MSN program meets this need by blending the expertise of the faculty of the School of Nursing and the Rader School of Business with the student’s knowledge and experience. 

Designed to accommodate busy working professionals, courses are available through either online  or via blended-online format. The on-line format allows convenience for distance learning while the  blended-on-line format combines the benefits of face-to-face interaction with the convenience of online learning. Both formats provide flexibility to balance graduate education with work and family responsibilities.

Curriculum Format

Blended Internet Delivery

Blended Internet delivery combines the rich faculty/student interaction that is the hallmark of an MSOE education with the flexibility of online learning. The amount of time students spend in class is reduced, while time spent on project-focused learning is enhanced. MSOE’s blended classes meet face-to-face three or four times per quarter.

100% Online Delivery

Geography is not a constraint for students interested in completing the MSN at a distance. In addition to the blended Internet format mentioned above, there also is an option to take courses via 100% online distance delivery. The rich faculty/student interaction that is the hallmark of an MSOE education is replicated in online classes creating dynamic and flexible learning environments.


The baccalaureate degree program in nursing and the master's degree program in nursing at Milwaukee School of Engineering are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education ( and have full approval of the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (
