About this Program

The ELMSN provides learning opportunities designed to give individuals with a baccalaureate in another academic discipline the theoretical and applied skills necessary for the professional practice of nursing. This program is a seven-semester program designed for those who hold a bachelor's degree in a non-nursing field.

Upon completion students will be awarded a Master of Science degree in nursing and be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination for licensure as a registered nurse. This program requires a full-time commitment for seven consecutive semesters including two summers.
