RN-to-MSN Program

The RN-to-MSN program is a fast-track option for nurses with a diploma or an Associate of Arts degree in nursing from an accredited program who want to move straight into a master's degree program. All RN-MSN applicants apply to a MSN specialty track.  The program is designed to prepare advanced-practice nurses to assume a role as an administrator, a nurse practitioner or a clinical nurse specialist, depending on the specialty track selected.

Professional Portfolio Requirements

An applicant may receive a maximum of 22 semester hours or credits for professional work experience. The Professional Portfolio will be evaluated by a faculty committee and an interview is part of the process. An applicant who earns fewer than 22 semester hours through the portfolio must make up the hours through nursing or liberal arts and sciences electives.  The professional portfolio must include a current curriculum vitae, a statement of professional goals and documentation for all submissions.
