UM-Flint has been recognized for its excellence in online education by the U.S. News & World Report in its “Best Online Program” rankings. Flint received recognition in the online graduate programs for both nursing and education. UM-Flint offers an online Doctor of Nursing Program (DNP) that prepares nurses to become family, primary care adult-gerontology, psychiatric/mental health, and adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioners. There is also an online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). This semester, in partnership with the Education Department within the School of Education & Human Services, the School of Nursing launched a Nurse Educator concentration within the MSN program.
UM-Flint first started online programs in 2000. “As an early adopter of distance education, we’ve had significant growth and will likely hit 18,000 individual course enrollments from 35 different states this year,” said Deborah White, director of the UM-Flint Office of Extended Learning.
