BSN Completion Option for Registered Nurse (RN) to MSN


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Eleanor Wade Custer School of Nursing

The RN to MSN Degree Option in the School of Nursing enables students who are registered nurses without a BSN to obtain an MSN degree within one of four specialty areas: Nurse-Midwifery, Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner.

However, certain states’ laws (e.g., West Virginia and Maryland) require certified nurse practitioners to have a bachelor’s degree or BSN in order to obtain prescriptive authority as a nurse practitioner. Students who anticipate practicing in those states should consider earning the BSN from Shenandoah University.

Please refer to the Graduate Academic Catalog for the specific criteria required to complete the BSN as part of their RN to MSN track.
