NEW! BSN to MSN Fast Track Option

The BSN to MSN Fast Track option is designed for RN to BSN students who may plan to continue their education and earn an MSN degree as well. With the Fast Track option, RN to BSN students can complete two graduate-level courses as elective credits toward their BSN degree. These credits can then also be applied toward the completion of specific MSN programs at GCU. (Only select courses are eligible for this option.)

With this greater efficiency, students can earn their BSN and MSN four months sooner than they could otherwise. They can also lower the overall cost of earning both degrees.

The Fast Track option is available for these high-demand MSN specialities:
Master of Science in Nursing with an Emphasis in Health Care Informatics
Master of Science in Nursing with an Emphasis in Nursing Leadership in Health Care Systems
Master of Science in Nursing with an Emphasis in Public Health
