The RN-MSN Option

Registered nurses who have an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) or a Diploma in Nursing may be eligible for early admission into the Master of Science degree program. Through a combination of prior credits in nursing education, college credits in liberal arts courses and upper division course work from the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, individuals may qualify to begin work toward the Master's degree and complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in the process.
