Looking at the MSN Bridge Program

Posted on May 12, 2017  in  [ Nursing & Health Care ]

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 program allows students to complete a set of foundational nursing courses and then enter the MSN program.
