All applicants and incoming students need to be aware that while the School of Nursing does not require COVID-19 vaccination, our clinical partners are requiring that all students are fully COVID-19 vaccinated prior to clinical placement and proof of vaccination must be provided, in advance. The successful completion of the clinical component of your program is essential for graduation. As a result, students will not be able to complete program requirements for graduation without completing the clinical requirement.

Program Overview

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Nursing Informatics (NI) track prepares graduates to assume an advanced practice role in nursing informatics. The MSN NI degree 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.

Upon completion of course requirements, graduates of the MSN NI track are eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Board Certification and the HIMSS Certified Professional in Health Information Management (CPHIMS) Exams.
