Today, many registered nurses are furthering their education and career by earning an MSN. If you’re an experienced RN who has a non-nursing bachelor’s degree, then you may benefit from earning a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). Through the College of Nursing and Health Care Professions, Grand Canyon University offers the MSN bridge. This allows students to complete a set of foundational nursing courses and then enter the MSN program.

Upper-Division Subject Matter

As a student in the MSN bridge pathway, you will take seven pre-requisite courses toward your MSN program of study that consist of upper-division classes in nursing. As you complete this pathway, you will learn how to conduct research for the healthcare and nursing industry; enhance patient outcomes through pathophysiology and assessment; and innovate methods of prevention, treatment and intervention for diverse populations. While completing this pathway, you will also learn how to assess learning needs, create and implement a curriculum and evaluate student achievements in varied settings.

A Bridge to Your Next Degree

Earning Grand Canyon University’s MSN degree will provide you with opportunities to advance your education and achieve your personal and professional goals. You may be able to apply concepts from your MSN bridge and subsequent degree program directly to your current nursing position.
