Dual Degree Options

    • Offered in a partnership with the Rollins School of Public Health at  Emory University, bridges the nursing education with advanced knowledge in public health
  • MA in Bioethics/MSN
    • Prepare advanced practice nurses to identify, address, and assess ethical issues as they appear in clinical practice and health care administration

The Bad

  • No BSN or MSN Online Degrees

No BSN or MSN Online Degrees

Emory University doesn’t have online programs for its bachelor of science in nursing or its MSN programs. However, students can get a Distance Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) online. 

The Bottom Line

There are plenty of reasons to attend Emory University. The fact that students can get an ABSN and DNP degree online is a nice feature. However, students who want to get their BSN or MSN degree will have to attend university full-time. There are plenty of program options for graduate students to select from and students can even receive a dual degree if they choose.
