Registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees in other fields are also eligible to apply for admission. Specialty tracks focus on selected areas of advanced practice nursing and nursing education. The degree

requirements may be completed in three to four semesters of full-time study depending on the specialty. Part-time study is also available.. MSN tracks are lock-step and students must successfully complete a semester to progress to the next semester.

PROGRESSION POLICY

In order for MSN students to progress through their programs to completion, the academic policy is as follows:

1. Any graduate student who receives a “C” or lower in a nursing course will be dismissed from his or her program.

2. A grade of “B-” or “C+” for a course is below graduate standards, and the student must repeat that course. However, a student may only repeat one course, one time.

3. A passing grade in all clinical experiences is required to pass a course having a clinical component (generally listed as a “lab section” by UM). Students who are not making satisfactory progress may also receive an academic alert at semester or mid-course.

● Synthesize knowledge gained from traditional and innovative learning methods to lead quality, cost-effective health care collaborations addressing health care disparities. ● Demonstrate expert clinical judgment and knowledge of health care systems to design,

deliver and evaluate evidence-based care interventions to reduce health care disparities. ● Model expert nursing practice and serve as mentors to nursing colleagues in their efforts to

improve nursing practice and health care systems.

INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION AND EXCHANGE PROGRAMS - Dept. Code: SAP

The International Education and Exchange Programs (IEEP) office provides opportunities for UM students to acquire an international perspective in their academic career through studying abroad on UM designed programs or at UM exchange partner universities overseas. IEEP offers an extensive array of overseas programs in over 35 countries.

The UM-designed programs are the UM Semesters on Location, delivered in Prague, Rome, Cape Town, Cusco, Shanghai, Manipal in India, and the Galapagos. The IEEP office also facilitates UM courses abroad, directed and taught by UM faculty members in Latin America, Asia, Europe, South Africa, and other locations. The faculty-led courses take place during the January Intersession, Spring Break, and the Summer Sessions. For the UM Semester on Location programs, students receive UM credits and UM grades, and the courses are taught by UM professors and/or professors from overseas universities who are experts in their academic fields.

Students can also receive UM credits and grades for study at any one of UM’s over 80 exchange partner universities overseas. These programs can be undertaken for a semester, year, and/or during the summer. Among a multitude of other options, students can study marine biology on the edge of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef at James Cook University, be at the center of Europe and study business at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, explore Iceland’s unspoiled nature while studying earth sciences at the University of Iceland, immerse themselves in Japanese culture and business practices at Sophia University in Tokyo, or become acquainted with the changing panorama of international relations at Uppsala University in Sweden. Many of these programs are delivered in English so foreign language proficiency is not required for most study abroad opportunities

The Schools and Colleges at UM encourage study abroad options for their students. With the assistance of the IEEP office and the guidance of academic advisors, students can select a study abroad program to fit almost any major. Additionally, UM financial aid will apply to the costs of the UM programs. Students are advised to plan as early as their freshman year so studying abroad can be incorporated into their academic plan.

Students enrolled in any study abroad program at a partner institution may not earn more than 25 percent of their credits toward any UM degree program (credit requirements may vary by major/level), including courses taught by UM faculty. A student who anticipates earning more than 25 percent of his/her degree credits while participating in a study abroad program must immediately inform his/her advisor or program chair, who will be responsible for notifying the appropriate parties so that advance approval can be obtained from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
