RN to MSN Programs in Nebraska

The overall face of health care is changing rapidly today and nurses are experiencing a large part of these changes. They are being asked to play more complex roles within the health care system and many of these new roles and responsibilities require that a nurse have a master's education. Due to the shortage of master's educated nurses, many colleges and universities have developed RN to MSN programs for RN's with a nursing diploma or for those with an associate's degree in nursing. Such programs allow current registered nursed to obtain their bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing concurrently and generally in a shorter period of time than if they were to get their degrees separately.
