  • RN to MSN Bridge Program

    Overview

    Drexel's MSN bridge program is for RN's who have a BSN equivalent or a Bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing and now wish to pursue their MSN degree. 

    The required “bridge course” in the MSN Advance Role Track is NURS 335: Genetics and Genomics: Application to Nursing Practice (3.0 quarter credits.) This class is available entirely online, is delivered in 10-week, quarter term session and includes a required field experience. This course is offered in any given term, and includes mandatory synchronous class meetings. 

    After successfully completing all requirements and admission to the MSN program, you'll progress directly into graduate-level courses. The BSN is not awarded in this program.

    To apply, please complete the admission process to the MSN program of your choice and seek initial advisement from the MSN program academic advisors.
