Drexel University's Registered Nurse–Master of Science in Nursing (RN-MSN) “bridge” program is available for nurses who have a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing and now wish to pursue an MSN degree. Applicants to this program must complete the admission process to the MSN program and seek initial advice from the MSN program academic advisors. The bridge program is available only to students applying for the MSN Advanced Role programs—it is not available for students wishing to pursue an MSN Nurse Practitioner degree. To learn more about alternative pathways to becoming a nurse practitioner, contact the Graduate Nursing Division. After successfully completing all requirements and admission to the MSN program, students progress directly into graduate-level courses. (Note: The Bachelor of Science in Nursing is not awarded in this program.)
This is an MSN pathway for nurses with a non-nursing BA or BS; a RN license is required.
