RN – MSN Bridge Programs in West Virginia

Though there are not many colleges or universities offering the RN to MSN (also known as ADN to MSN) program, they have become increasingly popular over recent years. RN to MSN programs allow registered nurses with a diploma or associate’s degree in nursing to pursue their master’s in nursing in a reduced amount of time. This is accomplished through credit transfers and transition from baccalaureate level courses to master’s level course work with no break. In the past, upon completion of a BSN program nurses would often practice for two or more years prior to entering a master’s nursing program. Many MSN programs actually required and still require applicants to have at least two years of work experience prior to applying. This has been a major breakthrough in the quest to bring younger nurses into nursing education and nursing administration.

There almost as many areas of concentration to choose from in the RN to MSN programs offered in West Virginia as there are in the traditional MSN programs. Everything from advanced practice options to nursing education. The majority of the RN to MSN programs in West Virginia will take 3 years to complete.
