In this online program, 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. 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, students enter the MSN program.
