Old Dominion University Online MSN Programs: NP, Nurse-Midwife, Clinical Nurse Specialist

The College of Health Sciences School of Nursing through Old Dominion University (ODU) offers an online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with eight advanced practice registered nursing specializations:

  • Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)
  • Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP)
  • Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP)
  • Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist/Educator (AGCNS)
  • Pediatric Clinical Nurse Specialist (PCNS)
  • Neonatal Clinical Nurse Specialist (NCNS)
  • Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP)
  • Nurse-Midwifery (NM)

There are two entry points: one for those with a BSN, and one for RN’s with a non-nursing bachelor’s degree. Coursework is delivered 100% online with varying campus visit requirements depending on the path chosen. Most specializations require five campus visits. The Nurse-Midwifery track does not require campus visits. Students also complete clinical practicums at approved facilities local to the student.

The FNP, PMHNP, and NM specializations are only offered on a full-time basis. The PMHNP and Nurse-Midwifery programs are joint programs with Shenandoah University. The first year of course are taken through ODU and the second year specialization courses through Shenandoah. Upon graduation, Old Dominion University awards the MSN, and a certificate of PMHNP or nurse-midwifery specialty is awarded through Shenandoah.

The other five specializations are offered on both a full-time and part-time basis. Courses are delivered in a combination of asynchronous and synchronous formats. Live online classes usually take place Thursday mornings.

Graduates of each MSN specialization are eligible to take the corresponding national certification exam.

Old Dominion University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). ODU is located in Norfolk, Virginia.
