RN to MSN Bridge Program


RN to MSN Bridge Program Overview

The demand for highly educated nurses grows each day.

Aspen University offers online, CCNE-accredited RN to MSN specialization programs for registered nurses who have an associate degree or diploma in nursing and want to expand their career opportunities. The program is designed for adult learners wishing to complete their master’s degree without the on-campus class requirement.

The goal is to enhance the health and quality of life for individuals, families, and communities at local, state, and national levels through excellence in teaching, scholarship, and practice.

Students personalize their degrees by selecting a required MSN specialization program before beginning coursework.

MSN Specializations

Our liberal arts and theory-based RN to MSN programs prepare nurses to assume leadership roles in management, education, and clinical practice within a diverse society and across a spectrum of healthcare settings. With the RN to MSN Bridge program, students do not receive a BSN degree, but instead progress toward graduating with an MSN in a specialty area.

Practicum courses are performed within a clinical practice or academic setting allowing students to apply concepts under the direct supervision of a Preceptor.
