An advanced-level nursing degree for Registered Nurses that takes one to two years post BSN. It is required to become an advanced practice nurse, such as a Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Nurse Anesthetist, Nurse Midwife, Nurse Administrator, or a Clinical nurse leader, and is considered an entry-level degree for nurse educators and managers. It is also a prerequisite for doctorate-level nursing education. This graduate-level degree may focus in one or more of many different advanced nursing specialties such as acute care, adult, family, geriatrics, neonatal, palliative care, pediatric, psychiatric, and women's health.
