RN-to-MSN

An RN-to MSN nursing program is for RNs who have an associate degree in nursing and want to earn an MSN immediately after earning the BSN. The courses in the program are tailored to the specific needs of the students so that they receive as much advanced placement credit for their BSN as possible avoiding overlap between their BSN and MSN courses.
