The purpose of this dual credit option is to offer eligible BSN Pathway students the opportunity to take up to four (4) selected MSN courses in lieu of undergraduate courses. Courses taken at the graduate level fulfill requirements for both programs. A BSN degree is earned upon completion of the 31-credit core. Students are identified as an undergraduate student until the BSN degree is conferred, at which time they are eligible to continue in the MSN program they have chosen and been accepted to.
Eligibility criteria for this option includes:
1. RN with a bachelor's degree in another field,
2. Completion of NUR 303, Transition to Baccalaureate Nursing Practice, and
3. Completion of MAT 308, Inferential Statistics, or transfer equivalency
4. GPA of 3.5 or higher
The BSN to MSN Dual Credit Advantage Intent Form is located in the BSN Student Handbook and in the BSN Student program site. Upon submission of the BSN to MSN Dual Credit Advantage Intent Form, students will be contacted by a program specific faculty member to review the appropriate course sequencing, advisement, and preparation for graduate coursework. Course selection depends upon the selected MSN concentration.
