The University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) is part of the University of Missouri System, along with four other campuses. The Kansas City campus offers both undergraduate and graduate-level degree-earning programs. It was established in 1933 and is built on 40 acres of land. However, the campus is now spread across multiple locations. Most of the academic buildings are in the Rockhill neighborhood. The university has numerous partnerships with nationally recognized healthcare facilities. These partnerships are designed to help promote more collaboration in education, research, and community outreach. The academic programs are offered through 12 schools and colleges. The nursing programs are managed through the School of Nursing and Health Studies. 

The UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies offers three CCNE-accredited baccalaureate programs in nursing, including traditional BSN, accelerated BSN, and RN to BSN programs. The traditional program is designed to be completed in three years, while the accelerated program may be completed in a year, once the prerequisite courses are completed. The school also offers MSN, DNP, and PhD programs. The MSN program includes six specialty tracks, including Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, and Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. These specialty tracks are completed through online studies and at least one on-campus class.
