Welcome to the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Online Program Library Guide. This guide is designed to support students enrolled in the Family Nurse Practitioner MSN Online Program in their pursuit of their degree. An online masters program requires access to services and resources remotely. This guide will equip MSN Online students with the tools needed to use Samuel Merritt University Library services and resources without setting foot in the actual building.
