Online Bridge Programs for Nursing
If you are a Registered Nurse with a bachelor's degree in another field, you can earn your master's degree in nursing (MSN) through the RN to MSN bridge program at Grand Canyon University. Through six core courses from the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, you will gain skills and knowledge essential to pursue graduate study1. This accelerated path to your MSN builds upon your prior education and experience with critical-thinking, communication and evidence-based practices using Christian values to inform your practice.
You will continue into the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) emphasis of your choice including: Leadership in Health Care Systems, Nursing Education, Public Health, Health Care Informatics or a dual MSN degree with a Master of Business Administration (MBA). You can also prepare for an advanced practice role through our Acute Care Nurse Practitioner or Family Nurse Practitioner programs.
Bridge coursework is conveniently offered online with frequent start dates. Online MSN programs are offered with select emphases available at our Phoenix campus and campus extensions throughout Arizona and Albuquerque.

The baccalaureate degree in nursing and master's degree in nursing at Grand Canyon University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation).
