Program Overview

The Master of Science in Nursing Informatics (NI) Certificate prepares graduates to assume an advanced practice role in nursing informatics. The NI Masters is an online track that requires occasional travel to the Lubbock campus for field experience or immersion work on technical and analytic competencies.

A Post-Master's Nursing Informatics Certificate is also available to those who currently hold a Master of Science in Nursing and wish to assume an advanced practice role in Nursing Informatics.
