RN to MSN – Transition Option

An RN to MSN – Transition Program is offered to RN licensed nurses with non-nursing/BSN baccalaureate degrees. After review of their undergraduate degree by the assistant dean of nursing, students will be required to complete undergraduate courses to the particular track. These courses will be mutually agreed upon by the student and assistant dean prior to the start of the program.

If you have earned or are completing your RN licensure, and have a non-nursing/BSN baccalaureate degree – you may apply through the graduate application and have your records evaluated for admission to the MSN transition program. Apply Now
