R.N.-M.S.N. Bridge Program
Department of Nursing - Masters Degree Program
This program is offered to R.N.’s who have a B.A./B.S. Degree in a field other than nursing and wish to pursue the M.S.N. degree.
The “bridge” consists of three undergraduate courses or submission of a portfolio. Classes are online and are delivered in 10-week, quarter term sessions. A once-weekly clinical experience is required in NURS 375. At least one, and often several bridge courses are offered in any given term. Most bridge courses include mandatory virtual class meetings.
Students apply to the M.S.N. track of choice. Acceptance is provisional, pending successful completion of the bridge courses. Tuition for the bridge program is charged at the graduate rate. Students have one year after matriculating to complete the bridge program.
