RN-to-MSN Options — No BSN Required
At Loyola University New Orleans, we strive to provide convenient options for RNs looking to further their career in nursing. That’s why we have two RN to MSN options, depending on your educational background: a traditional RN to MSN or a RN to MSN Bridge option. The RN to MSN option is available to students who hold associate’s degrees in nursing. The MSN Bridge option is available to students who hold associate’s degrees in nursing and a bachelor’s degree in another discipline.
With the Affordable Care Act increasing emphasis on preventative care and an aging population that requires more health care attention, the professional field of nursing has never demanded so many new and educated workers.
