The R.N. to M.S.N. prepares practicing nurses for the role of a nurse educator in clinical, community, or academic settings. Upon successful completion of the program, students earn both a B.S. in Nursing and an M.S. Nursing with an emphasis in nursing education. Designed for associate degree or diploma school graduates who would like to move ahead in the healthcare field, this CCNE-accredited program helps nurses build upon their existing expertise through convenient online coursework with personal, individualized attention.
