RN to MSN Programs
RN to MSN bridge programs may provide RNs who currently hold an associate degree in nursing the opportunity to pursue an MSN degree online. With an M.S. degree in Nursing, you may gain the knowledge, skills, and influence to affect more lives and make an even bigger difference for your patients, your organization, and the future of health care. Nurses with an MSN may practice at a higher level, with greater autonomy and responsibility. Additionally, a MSN degree may also provide foundation for future nursing education such as doctoral studies (PhD in Nursing).
Online RN to MSN bridge programs vary in that in some award a BSN degree and then a MSN, while other programs skip right through the BSN to allow graduates to pursue a MSN degree. Online RN to MSN degree programs may offer similar course as on-campus degrees, in a convenient format. Additionally, some RN to MSN bridge programs may offer the added benefit of selecting an area of concentration, (such as Informatics, Education, or Management), enabling them to tailor their education and develop the professional skills to advance their careers.
If you're tired of waiting to be accepted for an opening in a traditional nursing school, and wondering how you could manage to handle working full time while trying to pursue your nursing degree then pursuing an online RN to MSN bridge program might be of help. Online nursing degrees may cost less than traditional degrees on average and you may pursue your degree faster too.
