George Washington University – Online RN to MSN Degree Program

Program Overview

According to George Washington University:

“Both recent and experienced nurses with an Associate Degree of Nursing or Associate of Science in Nursing can take advantage of our RN-to-MSN program option, which leads to the completion of both a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Science in Nursing. Our flexible, yet rigorous, curriculum allows you to earn both degrees simultaneously on a part-time basis. By the time you earn a BSN after 15 months, you’re only about two years from completing an MSN. You conduct your coursework online and complete the required clinical hours in your local community (at a site approved by GW Nursing).”
