Welcome to the University of Maine School of Nursing! If you are exploring your options for nursing education or if you are a University of Maine nursing student or graduate, we hope you find that our renovated webpage is informative and that it provides a way to stay connected with the School of Nursing.

The University of Maine established the nursing program in 1939, creating the first baccalaureate program for nurses in Maine. The nursing program later became a School of Nursing in 1958.  Our graduate program leading to a Master of Science degree in Nursing was first offered in 1992.  Originally developed as family nurse practitioner program, our graduate options now include individualized programs of study (I-MSN).  The Baccalaureate and Master’s programs in nursing are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).  The BSN and MSN programs also are approved by the Maine State Board of Nursing.  The School of Nursing is philosophically linked with the University of Maine’s mission to be the state’s center for learning, discovery, and service to the public. Faculty and students of the school serve as a vital resource to the people of Maine through clinical practice, scholarly activities, and leadership roles.
