RN to MS / Minor in Nursing Education

Format: Online

Program Description:

Wilkes University’s online RN to MS track allows experienced, practicing RNs with an associate’s degree (AAN or ASN) to earn a nursing-focused MS fully online in under three years – that’s less time than it takes to earn a BSN. Simply enroll and complete two bridge courses totaling 10 credit hours. These bridge courses will bring you up to a baccalaureate level of study, and prepare you for graduate coursework. After that, you’ll enter Wilkes University’s 39-credit Nursing Education online master’s program. (Please note that no pass-through bachelor’s degree is awarded.) The Nursing Education MS degree coursework helps prepare program graduates to take the national certification exam leading to Nurse Educator Board Certification. Qualified students can choose our accelerated option and earn their MS in just two years!
