Masters In Nursing

The next step after the bachelors in nursing degree is the masters degree. A masters in nursing (MSN) degree opens many doors for you and allows a nurse to become more involved in  management, administration, education, or as a practitioner. A masters degree is now required for many higher level nursing positions including teaching in a nursing program. There are many specialties to chose from in the MSN programs. Many of these programs can be completed online.

The MSN program may be entered with a bachelors degree, but there are also fast track RN to MSN online programs available that often save approximately one year off of time for completion of the program.

If you are considering this option it is important to evaluate the program carefully.

Some programs require the GRE (graduate record exam) prior to taking any graduate level classes, while others do not.

Some of the programs give you your BSN degree once you have completed enough credits to qualify while others do not offer you the BSN degree until completion. At that point you would receive both your BSN and MSN degrees. This point may be very important as holding a BSN degree can open up some doors for you while you continue to work on your MSN degree.

Some of the available options in MSN programs include:

  • Nursing administration
  • Nursing education
  • Nursing informatics
  • Nurse practitioner
  • Clinical nurse specialists
  • Nursing/Health systems management
