RN - BS - MSN

The RN-BS-MSN track is an accelerated program of study available to registered nurses seeking completion of both the baccalaureate (BS) and master's degree in nursing (MSN). The RN-BS-MSN program is an articulated plan that includes two bridge courses within the baccalaureate curriculum; and allows the student to complete graduate-level nursing courses while enrolled in the RN-BS program.

During the RN-BS-MSN plan, the BS degree is conferred upon successful completion of the RN-BS required curriculum and residency credits. The student then completes the master's program in a selected specialization track to meet degree requirements for the MSN. Students completing the RN-BS-MSN track will be awarded two degrees - a bachelor's of science in nursing (BS) and a master of science in nursing (MSN).
