Two of the Mount's graduate programs in nursing--the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)--were ranked in the U.S. News and World Report's Best Grad Schools List released on March 20, 2018.

The Mount's MSN is a six-semester, blended-format program offering three specialized tracks: administration, education, and clinical nurse leader. The DNP offers a part-time, blended format, and prepares current professionals in the nursing field to lead at the highest level of advanced nursing practice.

Both the MSN and the DNP are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). These programs are part of the Mount's School of Health Sciences, which launched a new Physician Assistant (PA) program with accreditation-provisional status in 2017. Undergraduate nursing programs in the School of Health Sciences include a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and an RN to BSN program.
