RN to MSN Bridge Programs in VA

The RN to MSN degree tracks prepare students for professional nursing roles in advanced practice, nursing education, nursing administration/management and entry to doctorate level nursing programs. Registered nurses with a diploma or associate's degree in nursing have the opportunity to bridge the BSN and MSN curriculum all in one program. This path allows registered nurses to earn their master's of science in nursing in a reduced amount of time as compared to first earning a BSN, practicing for two or three years and then pursuing a master's in nursing.

Curriculum generally consists of core baccalaureate and master's education requirements. The student's chosen area of concentration focuses on the most current theoretical and clinical techniques and their application in professional nursing. The diversity of potential students and their schedules demands a flexible option for pursuing higher education. RN to MSN online programs meet this demand, providing students the option to take and complete courses when convenient for them.
