The Bridge to Master of Science in Nursing program is designed for registered nurses with a bachelor’s degree in health sciences or other related fields. The program is intended to meet the needs of adult learners who already posses a bachelor’s degree and an RN license who desire to pursue a graduate degree in nursing. Courses in the bridge program are a blending of RN to BSN core courses that are considered essential requisites to graduate study. Upon completion of bridge courses from the BSN core, students enter one of five emphases offered for the Master of Science in Nursing or the Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Nursing: Nursing Leadership in Health Care Systems (Dual-Degree).
The program is designed for RNs who have bachelor's degrees in a field outside of nursing who want to earn their MBA/MSN dual degree. Instead of requiring these students to earn a BSN degree, they take six courses from our BSN program and then launch into the MBA/Master of Science in Nursing Leadership in Health Care Systems track.
