Registered Nurse to Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner
The online registered nurse (RN) to master of science in nursing (MSN), family nurse practitioner degree program is appropriate for both recent and experienced nurses with an associate's degree. The program leads to the completion of bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) and MSN degrees. Students enter the program with up to 84 credits in advanced standing, allowing them to progress quickly through the BSN program while continuing to work as professional nurses. Up to 15 credits from the completed BSN may be applied toward MSN degree requirements.
Students must become licensed as a registered nurse within the first semester of matriculation in the program and must attend three on-campus experiences related to MSN courses (NURS 6222, NURS 6231, and NURS 6232).
Upon completion of this program, students will be eligible to sit for the nationally recognized American Association of Nurse Practitioners or American Nurses Credentialing Center certification examination for family primary care nurse practitioner.
Specific admission requirements are shown on the Graduate Program Finder.
