RN - MSN Completion Programs in Connecticut

The idea of RN to MSN programs is to offer a bridge for registered nurses who have a diploma or associate's level education in nursing. In keeping within the guidelines for CCNE and NLNAC accreditation, these programs incorporate the baccalaureate education prior to presentation of master's level course work. In fact, many programs will offer both the baccalaureate degree as well as the master's degree upon successful completion of the program. Students can expect these programs to take around three years to complete.

The MSN degree is the logical step for registered nurses looking to advance their careers into an advanced practice role such as, nurse practitioner, nurse anesthetist or clinical nurse specialists. It is also the degree needed for entry to doctorate level programs for nursing faculty educator roles at most universities and colleges.
