Benefits at a Glance:
The Accelerated RN to MSN online option is perfect for professional nurses with defined education goals. This affordable degree option offers a seamless academic option by allowing eligible BSN students to complete two graduate-level courses within their BSN program. Successful completion of these courses will then waive two courses within the MSN program, which can save you both tuition and time. Prior to moving into the MSN program, students must successfully achieve their BSN degree at SNHU.
SNHU RN to BSN students who apply to and are accepted into the online Accelerated RN to MSN option can choose to pursue different tracks:
Student support. Dedicated academic and career advisors specialized in your area of study work with you every step of the way.

As a registered nurse (RN), you are part of a noble profession, one that blends professionalism with compassion. You're also part of the fastest growing field in America. The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that healthcare will add more jobs by 2026 than any other occupation - about 2.3 million.*
The demand for nurses with bachelor's-level education continues to grow at hospitals and other healthcare organizations. The Institute of Medicine is urging that the number of BSN-prepared nurses increase to 80% by 2020, and healthcare providers are seeking nurses with an MSN for their supervisory and managerial opportunities.*
The RN-to-MSN option can expand your nursing career employment and leadership opportunities and prepare you to serve as a Clinical Nurse Leader, clinical nursing faculty member and a nursing administrator. It can also set you up to earn a premium - nurses with master's degrees earn $12,000 more on average than those with only a bachelor's. Reach your career goals faster by moving from RN-to-MSN.
Nursing is, at heart, a profession that emphasizes compassion. Your instructors are caring professionals who are leaders in their field and who understand that good nurses put the needs of their patients first, whether they're in the boardroom, the classroom or the operating room.
