The MN and DNP programs are largely distance delivered and offer curriculum options including: Clinical Nurse Leader (MN), Family/Individual Nurse Practitioner (DNP), and Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (DNP). A Certificate in Nursing Education is also offered. The College of Nursing offers a research supportive environment in which tenure track faculty focus on projects of relevance to health care in rural and isolated areas. The College has been nationally recognized for its work in rural nursing practice, research that focuses on the needs of vulnerable populations especially American Indians, and the preparation of health care providers to serve rural areas. The Caring for Our Own Program (CO-OP), a project to recruit and retain American Indian students in nursing, is a national model for such work.

Faculty members have opportunities to teach in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. Tenure track faculty members are expected to establish a focused program of research and to successfully seek extramural funding.
