Are you ready to take your nursing career to a new level?

Our RN-MSN program may be for you!


IMPORTANT UPDATE - 9/30/14: Our program is changing. Please check for updates.

This program is a flexible option designed for the RN who wants to transition to an advanced practice role as a Family Nurse Practitioner or Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner after earning the BSN degree. 

You will start by completing the RN-Transition application, whether you want to earn your BSN or consider moving on to your MSN. 

Students accepted in the RN-MSN program substitute three graduate level nursing courses for three of the RN-BSN courses, and then continue with graduate course work after earning the BSN degree.  To be considered for admission, you must meet the criteria for admission to the RN-BSN program, along with three additional criteria:

  • Complete the RN-Transition online application
  • Take the GRE prior to enrolling in the first graduate class
  • Participate in a personal interview with the graduate program coordinator

For more information about the FNP and FPMHNP programs, visit the MSN web page or follow the links below.

The RN to MSN program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).  The program includes a total of 124 hours (58 nursing hours, included 28 hours awarded through the Texas Nurses Association (TNA) Articulation Agreement, and 66 non-nursing hours.

We accept RN to MSN applications at any time.
