RN to MSN - Master of Science in Nursing Degree (MSN)
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program develops the knowledge and skills required of registered nurses and enables nurses to pursue more challenging careers in the health care environment.
The program combines nursing theory with the advanced practice concepts necessary to work successfully within the structure and culture of a variety of health care organizations.
To be admitted to the MSN program, you must have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree earned at an institution with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, and must have a valid Registered Nurse (RN) license within the United States.
The MSN curriculum consists of four core courses and eight advanced courses that provide specialization in one of four nursing concentration areas: community health, gerontology, nursing administration, and wellness.
