Admission requirements According to the University of Arizona, to be eligible for admission to the RN-MSN program, applicants must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Hold a current unencumbered license as an RN in the state in which applicant currently practices. Note: an “unencumbered license” means neither the license, the licensee’s practice, nor the licensee is associated with any type of restriction, encumbrance, or probationary limitations imposed by the applicable Board of Nursing or any judicial entity. A copy of the RN license must be submitted at the time of application.
  • Have earned an associate or baccalaureate degree in nursing from a regionally accredited institution of higher learning, such as the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)–formerly known as the National League for Nursing (NLN)–with a 3.0 GPA or higher (based upon a 4.0 scale). The ADN-MSN track GPA calculation is based on the last 30 credits of applicant’s associate program; the BSN-MSN track GPA calculation is based on the last 60 credits of applicant’s baccalaureate program.
  • Satisfy the minimum clinical work experience requirement. ADN nurses must have the equivalent of two full years of work experience as an RN within the past five years; BSN nurses must have at least one full year of RN work experience within the past five years.
