Graduate Programs

Master’s Degree Programs

Our master's programs are designed for nurses seeking advanced roles in clinical practice (nurse practitioners and nurse midwives), nursing administration, education, and informatics while providing the necessary foundation for doctoral study.

Advanced Certificate Program

If you already have a master's degree and would like to refine your practice to a specific patient population, an advanced certificate program at NYU Meyers is a terrific way to gain and demonstrate that knowledge. 

PhD Program

The Florence S. Downs PhD Program in Nursing Research & Theory Development prepares nurses and midwives to design and conduct research that seeks to enhance individual and community health, improve health equity, and strengthen health systems. Graduates are prepared to lead research studies and collaborate on interprofessional research teams.

DNP Program

Students who complete the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at NYU Meyers are prepared at the highest academic level for advanced clinical practice. A DNP degree enables clinical scholars to function as organizational systems thinkers and leaders in practice innovation, quality, and safety.
