RN to MSN and BSN to MSN Programs

A Master of Science in Nursing in Colorado has two routes depending on how you came into nursing. The first is for those with an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) who work as RNs. The second is for BSN graduates. The latter is less involved and shorter because such students have a better grounding in nursing theory and practice. The former will require more education and more time. Both offer fully online and fully offline, while some offer hybrids that mix the best of both worlds.

Typical Program Length

  • 12-14 months full-time, four semesters for BSN to MSN
  • 24-30 months full-time, six semesters RN/ADN to MSN

Typical Admission Requirements

  • RN license – in date and with a good practice record
  • The relevant qualification (ADN or BSN) and accredited
  • 3.0 GPA on the 4.00 scale
  • A resume with your details of clinical experience. Alternatively, three recommendation letters from relevant people
  • Accredited and current CPR (do not have to be a CPR practitioner)
  • Complete all prerequisite courses
