Power Forward >> Take Your Career to the Next Level

The Graduate Nursing Programs at Oak Point University combine the challenge of strong academics with an experienced faculty whose goal is to bring out your full potential in a nurturing environment.

We offer majors that are tied to real-world career paths and an educational experience that is recognized and respected by healthcare leaders.

As a student of one of our Graduate Nursing Programs, you’ll be prepared for an in-demand career as an advanced generalist or specialist who will care for patients throughout the full spectrum of the healthcare delivery settings and across various stages of health and wellness.

Since 1914, Oak Point University has prepared students for successful careers as nurses and nursing leaders. When you earn your MSN, post-master certificate, or DNP at Oak Point you join a family that is as passionate and committed to nursing excellence as you are and continue a proud tradition of nursing education excellence that dates back more than a century.

Life’s Been Hard;
Taking Care of Your Needs Shouldn’t Be

Over the past two years, we’ve seen nurses like you put your career growth aside to focus on serving patients in need, and we can’t thank you enough.

Although your career trajectory may have changed, we know your destination hasn’t. It’s time to get back on track and power forward towards the graduate education that’s been waiting for you.

We have refined our program offerings with your wellbeing in mind—from financial planning to mental health to professional guidance. We invite you to PowerForward and focus on your needs in 2022.
