Earning your MSN doesn’t need to take years. Our BSN-MSN can be completed in as few as 3 semesters or 1 year.1
The BSN to MSN program is designed with working nurses in mind. Delivered online and asynchronously, the program enables you to do your coursework when it’s most convenient for you – so you can balance your education with the rest of your life.
The program delivers the educational background you need to advance your nursing career. Graduates are prepared for advanced generalist practice, leadership, and education roles. You will also be prepared for research or practice-focused doctoral programs if you choose to continue your education.
The curriculum reflects the Essentials of Master’s Education for Nursing, as established by The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Focused content and clinical experiences relevant to management, population health, and case management are woven throughout the program, helping graduates improve population health outcomes, apply organizational and systems leadership, implement quality improvement and improve safety.
BSN to MSN students work closely with faculty to develop an individualized capstone project in leadership, case management or population health that includes relevant fieldwork experiences, helping graduates gain relevant and meaningful expertise.
