T he RN-to-MSN program is intended for those nurses who have a diploma or associate degree in nursing along with at least three years of experience.
Students do not obtain a baccalaureate degree and so need careful advising to ensure that this plan of study is appropriate for their career goals. In this program, students complete three semesters (one year) of bridge courses designed to prepare them for success in a graduate program. After successful completion of the bridge requirements, students enter the MSN program.

The Department of Nursing actively engages in transforming lives through the promotion of health and in increasing the quality of health care, particularly for underserved and vulnerable populations. We will cultivate a multicultural community of faculty and students in the Department of Nursing to create innovative models of education and practice, foster well-being and a collegial spirit that employs an interdisciplinary approach to nursing education. To accomplish these goals, the following values are embraced:

   1. Diversity and respect
   2. Collaboration and excellence within a culture of safety
   3. Stewardship of personal and environmental resources
