An Advanced Master’s for Qualified RNs 

Drexel University’s MSN bridge program is for RNs who have a BSN equivalent or a Bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing and now wish to pursue their MSN degree. This exclusively-online Master’s degree is offered by Drexel University’s nationally-ranked College of Nursing and Health Professionals (CNHP). All courses have been developed and are taught by Drexel’s renowned CNHP faculty, distinguishing the MSN bridge program from similar online degrees offered by other institutions. 

The “bridge” consists of one undergraduate course. Individuals with extensive professional experience may request to waive the bridge course. The required “bridge course” in the MSN Advance Role Track is Issues in NURS 370 Aging and Longevity (4.0 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, students progress directly into graduate-level courses. The BSN is not awarded in this program.

Applicants to this program must complete the admission process to the MSN program of their choice and seek initial advisement from the MSN program academic advisors. The MSN programs eligible for RN-MSN Bridge are as follows:

The bridge program is not available for students wishing to pursue an MSN Nurse Practitioner degree.
