Program Overview

The Bridge to Leadership Education in Nursing at a Distance (BLEND) at Loyola University New Orleans is a two-course entry option designed specifically for active RNs with non-nursing bachelor’s degrees who would like to enroll in the online MSN program.  The BLEND option is developed for nurses who have already earned an undergraduate bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing, but wish to pursue their graduate degree in nursing. The programs are designed to “bridge” your professional nursing experience and training with the foundational knowledge you need to be successful in a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program.

    School Overview

    In 1904, Loyola College opened its doors and its continued success led to a bill to grant it university status in 1912. Just seven years later, Loyola University New Orleans began offering evening classes for adult students and today this tradition continues.  

    Loyola focuses on enhancing your talents to the fullest by developing the whole person. This represents the true Jesuit tradition and our number-one priority: quality of education.

    We instill within you the competencies needed to be successful as well as a commitment to professionalism, integrity, and dedication to the community. 

    Loyola offers distance learning courses in order to educate students across the United States and internationally. At Loyola University, students have the opportunity to complete several graduate degrees online. Online classes retain the credentials of campus-based courses but offer the flexibility and convenience to fit the schedules of distance learners.
