RN to MSN and BSN to MSN Programs

Universities in Indiana offer two pathways to acquiring an MSN. The first is for those with an ADN who currently work as an RN. This type of program takes longer than the second type – programs for BSN graduates to earn an MSN, as those with a BSN have a more solid background in a range of nursing issues. These programs cover the same subjects and content, but the former is more intense to bring students up to speed. Most are available as fully online and traditional campus study experiences. Some degrees offer a mix of both.

Typical Program Length

  • When studying full-time, a BSN to MSN type degree will take four semesters to complete
  • An RN/ADN to MSN degree will take six semesters full-time

Typical Admission Requirements

  • A current and valid RN license
  • Regionally accredited ADN or BSN
  • A minimum grade of 3.0 GPA on the 4.0 scale of all relevant academic work
  • Three recommendation letters from clinical supervisors. Alternatively, send a resume with your clinical experience
  • CPR certification
  • Complete required prerequisite courses to minimum grades
