Program Overview

Wilkes University’s online RN to MSN track allows experienced, practicing RNs with an associate’s degree (AAN or ASN) to earn a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) fully online in under three years – that’s less time than it takes to earn a BSN. Simply enroll and complete two bridge courses totaling 10 credit hours. These bridge courses will bring you up to a baccalaureate level of study, and prepare you for graduate coursework. After that, you’ll enter Wilkes University’s 39-credit Master of Science in Nursing with a Nursing Informatics concentration online master’s degree program. (Please note that no pass-through bachelor’s degree is awarded.) The Nursing Informatics MSN degree coursework helps prepare program graduates to meet all of the academic eligibility requirements to test for the nation’s premier certification for nursing informatics administered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) – a credential that can open rewarding leadership and promotion opportunities.
