Azusa Pacific’s Entry-Level Master’s in Nursing (ELM) program offers nursing education to those with bachelor’s-level or higher degrees in other disciplines. Students enroll in nursing theory and clinical courses, followed by a clinical residency, in preparation for the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. Students then select a nursing specialty and complete more graduate courses, after which the Master of Science in Nursing is awarded.
