    • Registered nurses with a baccalaureate or higher degree in nursing will be considered for admission to the MSN Program.
    • Registered nurses without a baccalaureate or higher degree in nursing, who have completed a diploma or associate degree nursing program and have a bachelor’s degree in another discipline, will be considered for admission to the MSN Program with the additional requirement of a portfolio of relevant employment and academic experience.
    • Registered nurses who have an Associate Degree in Nursing but no baccalaureate degree in any discipline will be considered for admission via the AND Bridge Entry option.
