Program Credits

The R.N. to M.S.N. prepares practicing nurses for the role of a nurse educator or leader in clinical, community, or academic settings. Upon successful completion of the program, students earn both a B.S. in Nursing and a M.S. in Nursing Education or Nursing Leadership. Students will be conferred the B.S.N. degree at the time when course work is completed. 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.

Students complete 12 credits of graduate level course work in the B.S.N. degree program at RMU that also transfers towards their M.S.N. requirements. This allows R.N. to M.S.N. students to complete both degrees one year faster than if they do the programs separately.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing, the Master of Science in Nursing and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs in the School of Nursing, Education and Human Studies are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
