MSN Programs Offered in Colorado

As you know, an RN to MSN program is designed for those registered nurses with a diploma or community college nursing degree where as a Master’s in Science Nursing Degree (MSN) program requires that you have already completed a BSN or RN to BSN program.

Master’s degree programs expand on the undergraduate nursing education, preparing nurses for more complex roles in specialty nursing. These roles require a nurse to possess leadership skills, independence and to be significantly more accountable than nurses with undergraduate education.
