RN-MSN Pathway

Six credits of the RN-BSN program will be substituted with 6 credits from the MSN Program. Students will be charged the undergraduate tuition rate ($500 per semester) for the 6 credits of MSN courses while still enrolled in the RN-BSN Program.

Registered nurses with an associate degree or diploma in nursing are eligible to apply to the McKenzie-Elliott School of Nursing MSN program through the RN-MSN Pathway. The RN-MSN Pathway will require a total of 63 semester hours of general education coursework, 25 semester hours of BSN coursework, 30 semester hours of BSN validation credits, and 39 semester hours of MSN coursework for a total of 157 semester credit hours of study. Students interested in the RN-MSN Pathway must successfully complete the required undergraduate general education coursework and be in the last semester of required RN-BSN upper-division coursework before they are eligible to apply for the MSN program.
