    It is DEFINITELY different at Mt. Saint Joseph University at Cincinnati Ohio:

    http://www.msj.edu/view/academics/gr...nursing_2.aspx

    here' it clearly states: "What the MN degree program is not:

    -A program that prepares the nurse for advanced practice positions, such as a clinical nurse specialist, or a nurse practitioner

    -A Master of Science in Nursing degree"

    SO they're definition of MN does not equal a MASTERS of science in nursing in which you get to be an NP or clinical nurse specialist.

    Uhm, you're posting in the CANADIAN forum discussing a CANADIAN education.

    Different nation, different requirements!
