Nursing (RN to BSN)

Nursing is the fastest-growing occupation in the United States. Few professions provide you with as many choices of where to work, areas to specialize in, or degrees to use. As the health-care field becomes more complex and demanding, a bachelor's degree in nursing has become an essential credential for nurses who want to advance their careers. MSU’s RN Transition Program is designed to help certified RNs who have associate degree in nursing enhance their professional skills and increase their value to employers. This is an online program that can be completed in two or three semesters for full-time students or four semesters if attending part-time. New students begin in the fall, spring, and summer semester each year. MSU’s Wilson School of Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
