Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Curricula

The accelerated RN to MSN program allows the RN to move more quickly through the nursing requirements toward a professional career goal. In this program no BS degree is awarded. Instead the student moves through a combination of BS and MSN course work and is awarded only a MSN degree at completion of all program requirements. Students choosing not to complete the accelerated RN to MSN program may receive the BS degree in nursing only by completing the regular BS program requirements (see undergraduate catalog).
