Help and heal in the spirit of aloha
Health care professionals encounter patients from all walks of life, and nurses are no exception. The online Master of Science in Nursing program at HPU mirrors this diversity and is rooted in the spirit of place and community that defines our culturally rich island.
HPU’s online MSN degree is designed for BSN-educated registered nurses looking for career advancement, personal fulfillment, and the independence to more directly influence patient outcomes. Three starts are offered throughout the year, allowing you to begin the program when it’s most convenient.
We’re deeply committed to making a positive difference in the world. So are our nursing students. As a valued member of the HPU family, you’ll learn to deliver transcultural care in the spirit of aloha, or “love, kindness, grace, and unity.” HPU MSN graduates embody this Hawaiian value in their communities and workplaces, leading by compassionate example in an increasingly global society.Download Brochure
