Nursing is a Journey. Where Are You Headed?
The Gonzaga University online RN to MSN (Master of Science in Nursing) program is designed for registered nurses with an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) who want to earn an advanced nursing degree.
An online MSN can open up new career opportunities for nurses interested in management or specialized nursing positions—and with this accelerated program, you will earn your master’s degree much faster than you would earning your bachelor’s and master’s degrees separately!
Built with the flexibility to fit your busy career, the online RN to MSN program at Gonzaga University, located in Spokane, Washington allows multiple entry points on the road to your Master’s of Nursing. With an associate’s degree, it takes approximately 66 credits to finish the program, including a ten-course bridge that prepares students for master’s-level course work. Students with bachelor’s degrees need to complete only 36 to 47 credits to earn the online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree.
This bridge program is designed to prepare you for graduate-level work. You will study major research methods, approaches to improving health care and patient outcomes, and leadership topics to develop professional and management skills.
The online RN to MSN program requires the completion of ten “bridge” courses (30 credits) with a minimum GPA of 3.0 in order to progress to MSN-level course work.
