Master's in Nursing Degree Program

A Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is an advanced degree for nurses looking to take their career to the next level. Students holding a BSN move directly into either the Nursing Education Track or the Nursing Administration Track of the MSN degree program.

Adult learners who possess an RN license and a non-nursing bachelor’s degree can enter the RN-MSN program. After completing BSN bridge courses, these students choose which MSN track fits their interests.
