Bradley U Meets Student Demand with 5 New Online Grad Programs

Bradley University has teamed with a private partner to launch five new online graduate degree programs in an effort to meet growing student demand.

The new programs, currently in development and scheduled for launch in fall of 2015, include:

  • Registered Nurse to Master of Science in Nursing in Nursing Administration;
  • Master of Science in Nursing — Family Nurse Practitioner;
  • Post-Master's Certificate — Family Nurse Practitioner;
  • Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) with Leadership and Family Nurse Practitioner; and
  • Master of Arts (MA) in Counseling with Professional School Counseling & Clinical Mental Health Counseling concentrations.

To create the courses, Bradley has partnered with Pearson, which "will provide a full suite of student support and retention services, course development and design, faculty support, marketing, recruitment, and helpdesk services," according to a news release.

"Bradley focuses on programs of national distinction and these online learning programs will be transformative for the university," said Joanne Glasser, president at Bradley, in a prepared statement New graduate programs in nursing coupled with our existing programs that are currently rising in national distinction, make our offerings even more attractive to a new and growing demographic of students. This partnership enables Bradley to expand select high-demand programs through Pearson's extensive expertise in delivering innovative online learning services. The DNP offering will become the second doctorate available from Bradley in the health professions, along with the first offering, a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. This shows our commitment to providing excellent programming in the health professional areas."

Founded in 1897, Bradley University serves approximately 5,700 students with undergraduate and graduate programs in "liberal and fine arts, the sciences, business, communications, education, engineering, technology and the health sciences," according to information on the school's site.
