For Students

For Recruiters

Virtual Career Fairs are online ‘events’ that allow employers and students to meet in virtual environments such as through voice calls or video chat rooms, and offer a number of advantages to both students and employers! Employers enjoy lower recruiting costs through the ability to virtually screen quality candidates, receive electronic resumes and save time and costs associated with traveling to participate in on-site events. We will be working with Career Fair Plus to host our upcoming virtual career fair, to create an intuitive, user-friendly experience for students and employers. You will have the ability to set your availability — i.e., you do not have to be available for the entire fair time frame. Check out this video demo to see how it works!

Each semester the SHP Office of Career Services hosts a Career & Opportunities Fair for University of Missouri students. We invite a variety of recruiters searching for graduate students, employees, interns, and/or volunteers.  The School of Health Professions houses over a number of different degree programs, including the Health Science degree.  The Health Science degree is the fastest growing program at the University of Missouri, which offers a strong health foundation for students to explore interests such as public health, health administration, clinical professions, health education, and more.  Click on any of the links below to learn more about our programs:

Nursing Academic Programs

The MU Sinclair School of Nursing offers a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate program options.  Our undergraduate degree includes the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) with three distinct pathways: Traditional BSN, Accelerated BSN, and the RN to BSN (online) for nurses with associate degrees.

Graduate and professional online degree programs include the Master of Science (MS) in Leadership, Educator and Advanced Practice, and MS in Care Management. The MS in Care Management accepts students with BSN’s or Health Science-related degrees.

Our online doctoral program offerings include the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Students interested in the DNP may select from one of five emphasis areas: Family Nurse Practitioner, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Geriatric Clinical Nurse Specialist, or Leadership. The online Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program, which also offers an international residential PhD option, is available for both nurses and non-nurses who seek a program which will prepare them as scholars, educators, and researchers in healthcare.

Please note: The MS in Care Management program will see its first graduating class in fall 2021.
