Master of Science in Nursing – Education

RN to MSN Bridge

Advance your career in nursing, even if your undergraduate degree is in another subject.

A Master of Science in Nursing is the perfect way to move into a leadership role and advance your nursing career. This bridge program makes it possible for Registered Nurses who do not have a BSN to enter an MSN program without having to complete a BSN first. RN’s who have a bachelor’s degree in another area of study can complete the bridge courses and get access to PA College’s master’s programs.

This bridge program includes three courses that prepare you to take on masters-level nursing coursework. The RN to MSN bridge is required for nurses without a BSN to advance into the master’s program at PA College.
