RN-MN

The RN-Master of Nursing program allows RNs with a bachelor’s degree in any field to pursue an advanced nursing degree while maintaining life’s commitments. Master’s prepared nurses are in high demand and needed to assume existing and emerging roles in a number of healthcare settings including management, administration, education, research, policy, and consulting to name a few. Full and part-time programs of study are available. This program is offered at all College of Nursing sites.

Prior to applying to the graduate school and selecting a master’s track option, you will be advised on the completion of the following 2 courses, which will help bridge your current bachelor’s degree to graduate-level course work in nursing.

  • NURS 360 Professional Nursing Concepts & Issues (2 credits)
  • NURS 440 Community Health Nursing Concepts (3 credits)

If you attend full-time, you can expect to finish the program in approximately 2 years. If you attend part-time, you will likely complete the program in 3-3.5 years.
