Online RN to MSN Pathway Overview
Are you a current or aspiring BSN student with a long-term goal of earning your MSN?
Our online RN-to-MSN pathway may be for you. This pathway lets students take graduate courses during their BSN that can then be used to waive credits in each of the MSN tracks. 4 of the MSN tracks (Population Healthcare, Family Nurse Practitioner, Healthcare Quality & Safety and Nurse Executive Leadership) can be reduced by 6 credits, while 1 of the MSN tracks (Nursing Education) can be reduced by 9 credits. This allows eligible registered nurses to more seamlessly transition from a BSN to MSN, and gives you the added benefit of earning a credential along the way.
The AP courses required for this pathway are:
- IHP-501: Global Health and Diversity
- NUR-531: Interprofessional Leadership in Healthcare
- NUR-634 Facilitating Learning and Teaching Innovation in Nursing Education (Applies to MSN - Nursing Education track only)
Make sure you speak to your student advisor early in your BSN to ensure your course plan includes the requisite AP courses.
The online RN to MSN pathway at SNHU requires you to choose from 5 specialty tracks — giving you the expertise you need to stand out in a number of nursing roles. The MSN tracks available within the Pathway are:
- MSN - Nursing Education
- MSN - Population Healthcare
- MSN - Family Nurse Practitioner
- MSN - Healthcare Quality & Safety
- MSN - Nurse Executive Leadership

Follow Our Accelerated Pathway for MSN
Calling all registered nurses! Want to advance your career faster — and for less money? SNHU designed this pathway for people just like YOU.
RN to MSN Career Outlook
As a registered nurse (RN), you are part of a noble profession, one that blends professionalism with compassion.
The demand for nurses with bachelor's-level education continues to grow at hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Since the National Academy of Medicine, formerly the Institute of Medicine, recommended that the number of BSN-prepared nurses increase to 80% by 2020, healthcare providers across the U.S. placed urgency and expectations for furthering the education for registered nurses.1 With this additional degree attainment, nurses with an MSN will be needed for supervisory and managerial opportunities.1
Community Health Nurse
As a community health nurse, you will help improve the health and well-being of a community by educating them about illness, safe health practices, disease prevention and how to obtain health care services.
In this role, you'll demonstrate and teach patient care in classroom and clinical units to nursing students. Your position may keep you primarily engaged in teaching or require you to do a combination of teaching and research.
Nurse Manager of Population Health
If you elect to become a nurse manager of population health, you'll be responsible for improving clinical health outcomes of a defined group of individuals through community engagement and targeted programs.
Infectious Disease Program Nurse
As an infectious disease program nurse, you will understand how infectious agents spread and focus on the prevention and control of conditions that are contagious. You are likely to be involved more in research, education and policy than hands-on care.
It's important to note that some of these roles may require additional certifications. However, the opportunities encompass a wide range of roles throughout the country – and are not just limited to highly-populated metro areas, either.
"I believe the greatest demand for nursing is within primary care and medical-surgical nursing units," said Daniel Arellano, a nurse practitioner and graduate faculty member at SNHU. “This is particularly true in rural areas of the country that may not have a local nursing school graduating new nurses for the community.”
The RN to MSN pathway can help expand your nursing career employment and leadership opportunities and prepare you to serve in several types of nursing careers and various settings. Reach your career goals faster by moving from RN to MSN.
"I became a nurse to help other people," said Bonnie Fecowicz, who earned her MSN at SNHU. "Before applying to SNHU, I went back to school but it just didn't fit in with a working lifestyle."
Bonnie's education not only gave her the opportunity to explore the present and future of nursing – it gave her a global perspective on the needs and challenges nurses face every day.
"When you take a course at SNHU, you're meeting students from around the world. So when we talk about global health – I'm working with students that are living in Africa or in South America. I'm hearing firsthand what drought means, what Zika virus outbreaks really mean."
Ultimately, these experiences lead her to career advancement – combining her skill set with an innate ability to lead, support and empower her nursing staff.
"The quality of the program has allowed me to advance my career into more diverse roles as a director of nursing. I use everything I learned every day in my position. SNHU has really invested in my success."

Job Growth and Salary
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for registered nurses is projected to grow 6% expected through 2023 – faster than the average for all occupations.2
The median annual salary for registered nurses was $81,220 in 2022.2
Understanding the Numbers
When reviewing job growth and salary information, it’s important to remember that actual numbers can vary due to many different factors — like years of experience in the role, industry of employment, geographic location, worker skill and economic conditions. Cited projections do not guarantee actual salary or job growth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are SNHU's nursing programs accredited?
Yes. The baccalaureate degree program in nursing and the master’s degree program in nursing at Southern New Hampshire University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001, 202.887.6791.
Can you go straight from an RN to an MSN?
At SNHU, RNs must earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing before moving on to their Master of Science in Nursing. The RN-to-MSN pathway gives you the opportunity to achieve your MSN faster – saving you time and tuition.
The pathway represents just one of the many ways SNHU works to empower nurses. We understand the daily challenges you'll face as a practicing nurse – and we believe wholeheartedly that, no matter how much time you dedicate to your job, you should always have the option to advance your career on your terms.
Is it hard to get into an MSN program?
At SNHU, we believe those who answer the call to become a nurse should have access to the education and tools they need to succeed. One way we do this is by offering a more seamless, hassle-free admission process.
SNHU has no caps or waiting lists for the RN to BSN and most MSN tracks, ensuring we meet the needs of our students and the healthcare field. Once you meet the Admissions Requirements, you'll be accepted into your chosen MSN track on a rolling basis, with 5 term starts per year.
These efforts are especially important when you consider this: In 2020, a total of 80,521 qualified applications were not accepted at schools of nursing, largely due to a shortage of clinical sites, faculty and resource constraints.3
Within this total, applications turned away included 66,274 from entry-level baccalaureate, 1,376 from RN-to-baccalaureate, 8,987 from master's, and 3,884 from doctoral programs.3
Given the persistent shortage of nurse faculty, AACN remains concerned that 12,871 applications were turned away from graduate programs, which limits the pool of potential nurse faculty.3
But at SNHU, our online MSNs empower nurses to pursue their goals, without wait times that put their life and career on hold.
What is the best RN to MSN program?
The best RN to MSN program is the one that fits your learning needs, schedule and budget. While there are many rankings in the market, at the end of the day, what really matters is that your degree works for you.
At SNHU, we take pride in creating nursing pathways that meet students where they are.
Our highly experienced nursing faculty understand what it's like to juggle home, work and school life. And now, in a post-pandemic world, we're more dedicated than ever to supporting you throughout your educational journey.
Built by nurses, for nurses.
Nursing is a job that is both physically and mentally demanding, and we get that. Additionally, 2020 brought challenges that we had never experienced before and strengthened our belief that nurses are heroes. That's why SNHU's curriculum was designed with nurses in mind. We aim to simplify the pathway to your master's, from offering affordable access to coursework online and on your time, to providing academic and career support when you need it. Because we believe that nurses are the heart of healthcare – and you deserve the opportunity to lead them.
Virtual classroom. Real impact.
You'll also have the option to make a real difference in your community through student groups, projects and initiatives. One such opportunity is the HEaRT – Higher Education and Real-World Training – Challenge, which pairs online students with community leaders to develop collaborative strategies and solutions to organizational problems. This team-based approach supports the interprofessional collaboration employees need to succeed in healthcare.
"The HEaRT Challenge offers students a meaningful way to build confidence, apply soft skills and demonstrate workforce readiness," said Dr. Toni Clayton, associate dean of health professions at SNHU.
Can you get your ADN online?
Pre-licensure nursing programs including an associate degree in nursing (ADN) are not completed online. Many registered nurses (RNs) start with an associate degree in nursing at a community college.
In fact, we partner with a number of community colleges across the country that offer all kinds of learning experiences – all built to fit your life and learning style.
Earning your ADN through one of our partner community colleges can be an excellent educational stepping stone – and a practical one, too. You'll be able to gain the foundational knowledge you need to advance, then transition seamlessly to an undergraduate degree at SNHU.
You'll also have the opportunity to develop your professional identity and open doors to nursing positions in an array of settings, from hospitals and doctor’s offices to schools and long-term care facilities.
Can I get an MSN without a BSN?
Yes, it's possible, but here at SNHU, the RN to MSN pathway is structured so you earn your BSN, then seamlessly progress to a master's program.
We do it this way because we believe every student should have the opportunity to earn valuable credentials as they pursue their goals. Not only will they serve as benchmarks in your own educational journey – they will show employers your qualifications as you complete your coursework. This could ultimately open doors for new employment opportunities, or put you on track to an advanced degree.
How long does it take to go from RN to MSN?
At SNHU, we're proud to offer our students an RN to MSN pathway that can help you save time and money. By applying and choosing this pathway, you'll have the power to complete your education without gaps, helping you advance in a smaller period of time and positioning you for leadership in your field once you graduate.
Typically, it can take many years for a nurse to earn an MSN, as it requires a few steps to complete.
First, you must become a registered nurse. This can be achieved in a couple of different ways but starts with attending an accredited pre-licensure nursing program which can be offered as several degree types including:
- Completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program which is typically four years in length or
- Completing an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program at a community college which is typically 2-3 years in length
After successfully achieving the required education, students must sit for and pass the NCLEX. All U.S. states, territories and the District of Columbia require registered nurses to have a nursing license. To earn licensure, you must complete an approved nursing program and pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) exam. Additional requirements for licensure vary by state.
From there, ASN graduates can apply for an RN to BSN program, which can also help them work toward their MSN through the RN to MSN pathway. Students entering the RN to BSN can transfer in up to 90 credits, which means they need to take 10 courses at SNHU to achieve a BSN. With those transfer credits, full-time students taking two courses per term can finish in under one year, and part-time students taking one course per term can finish in under two years. By selecting the RN to MSN pathway, most students will reduce their master's program to 30 credits. For those enrolled in the accelerated FNP track, the 51-credit program is reduced to 45 credits.
Apart from being both costly and time-consuming, earning these degrees can come with a host of other challenges, including:
- Transferability. Transferring credits from one institution to the next can be a time-consuming process. By opting for the RN to MSN pathway, however, you can save the hassle of getting credit for past academic achievements.
- Flexibility. Opting for a traditional (in-person) learning experience may conflict with your busy schedule. Earning your degree in a 24/7 online program – and combining two programs – can help you make it work.
Is an RN to MSN worth it?
A master's degree in nursing may be worth pursuing, depending on your personal and professional goals. Nurses who earn an MSN open the door to new areas of achievement, whether it's managing a team, creating positive change in patient outcomes, or providing a safe training and simulation experience to staff in various types of healthcare institutions. There are even opportunities to specialize in several high-demand areas, such as nursing education.
Taking the next step in your education can result in a number of rewards. You'll have the knowledge and credentials you need to make a bigger impact in the workplace. By leveraging a curriculum created by professionals who understand the complexities and evolving demands of the field, you'll have the added knowledge you need to keep up in the dynamic world of healthcare.
While holding a bachelor's in nursing demonstrates a nurse's commitment to a career, the master's degree can help you transition to a more specialized area of nursing. If you're looking to progress even further, an MSN is an essential next step to earning a doctorate degree in nursing.
Nurses with a master's degree may also position themselves for higher earning potential. "The employer interprets the additional credential as a highly desirable indicator of future performance and assigns value to the degree holder accordingly," said SNHU Career advisor Laurie Lewis.
For some, earning an MSN means rediscovering your passion in an established career.
Les Rothrock had worked as a nurse for more than a dozen years – and an emergency nurse for 10 – when he finally decided to go back to school and earn his master's. Partly fueled by a desire to work his way up in his organization, he wanted to build upon his years of experience to open new doors.
"What pushed me was the thought that I was learning many new things, but what I wanted was the credentials to back up what I was learning," said Rothrock, "and the satisfaction that I had earned it."
Eventually, he found the right fit in SNHU – and immediately noticed a change. "The learning experience goes beyond being simply academic to practical in my everyday work," he said. "It has given me the edge to be better prepared and equipped in doing my job. I have learned how to research and problem solve issues in my work as well."
With rejuvenated confidence and a broader skillset, Rothrock's prospects started to grow. He even got an offer from the school where he earned his associate degree in nursing.
"My biggest desire is to inspire other nurses in achieving beyond what they dreamed, to become what patients need today," he said. "A better-equipped nurse is better able to provide compassionate care and become an advocate for the patient and the profession."
“My students quote me by saying, ‘keep climbing the educational ladder.’ Learning is a requirement to be a great nurse,” said Daniel Arellano, nurse practitioner and graduate faculty member at SNHU. “Whether that learning is a local conference to enhance your skills or a PhD, always strive to make yourself a better nurse.”
