RN to MSN and BSN to MSN Programs

The two ways to earn an MSN in Florida depends on your background. Firstly, if you work as an RN after completing an ADN, you will need to find a relevant RN to MSN master's degree. If you previously studied a BSN, then you'll need a BSN to MSN program. The former will require more study as your associate degree would not have covered many elements present in the Bachelor of Nursing. They will take longer than the BSN to MSN as this type of graduate has more of a grounding in academia and what will be required.

Typical Program Length

  • Programs tend to take 12-15 months at a full-time pace (four semesters normally)
  • Part-time students can expect to complete in 24-30 months (six semesters normally)

Typical Admission Requirements

  • License to practice as a Registered Nurse (RN)
  • Regionally accredited ADN or BSN
  • Minimum GPA of 3.0 on the 4.0 score. However, check each admissions page as some universities may ask for higher entry scores
  • Detailed resume of your clinical background
  • Current CPR certification
  • Pass all mandatory prerequisite courses with a minimum stated grade (usually C)
