Emory Healthcare, Georgia’s top-ranked health care system, and the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing have joined forces to offer an Accelerated Master of Nursing (MN) program aimed to provide a seamless education to practice pathway for students wanting to transition from a nationally ranked nursing program into practice in a Magnet® designated hospital in Atlanta GA. The InEmory MN Program is a unique collaboration between education and practice committed to professional development through building relationships, providing a variety of practice possibilities in adult acute care, and offering a career destination at EHC.
Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and Emory Healthcare will now offer the 15-month InEmory MN program option for second-degree students with cohorts beginning annually in January. Students enrolled in this program will have the opportunity to learn from nationally renowned nursing faculty at Emory University while being immersed in clinical rotations focused in the Emory Healthcare system. Students will receive up to $10,000 in scholarships and will be hired by Emory Healthcare to practice in adult acute care in its hospital system following graduation and successful completion of licensure examinations.
“We are excited to offer this innovative program in collaboration with Emory Healthcare,” said Linda McCauley, dean of Emory’s School of Nursing. “Together, we can prepare registered nurses who deliver exceptional patient care with great leadership potential.”
“This program will have a transformational impact on clinical learning for nursing students while also growing the nursing workforce at Emory Healthcare with the best and brightest nursing graduates,” said Sharon Pappas, chief nurse executive at Emory Healthcare. “We are committed to giving students an unparalleled clinical learning experience that combines hands-on patient care coupled with evidence-based practice and research in our Magnet-designated hospitals.”
The Master of Nursing (pre-licensure) program is a full-time, campus-based program that allows students to earn a Master's degree in nursing in as little as 15 months. This program is for students wanting to work as an RN and is the first step in your nursing education. There are three entry points to earn an MN degree: The MN (Fall Entry), the InEmory MN (Spring Entry), and the MN Pathway to MSN (Summer Entry).
