An Advanced Master’s for Qualified RNs 

Drexel University’s MSN bridge program is for RNs who have a BSN equivalent and now wish to pursue their MSN degree in the nursing field. 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. 

  • For the nurse practitioner program, the “bridge” consists of three undergraduate courses. Classes are available entirely online and are delivered in 10-week, quarter term sessions. Several bridge courses are offered in any given term and include mandatory online synchronous class meetings.
  • For the MSN Advance Roles Track, the “bridge” consists of one undergraduate course or submission of a portfolio to request approval to waive the bridge course.

Students apply to the MSN track of their choice.  Acceptance is provisional, pending successful completion of the bridge courses.  Tuition for the bridge program is charged at the graduate rate.  Students have one year after matriculating to complete the bridge program.
