Do you enjoy working as an RN but feel ready to advance your career? You can expand your career options by completing an online RN to MSN degree program.
As the nursing shortage continues, a shortage of nursing educators also impacts the healthcare industry. An online nursing master’s degree program permits you to complete bachelor’s degree coursework and earn your nursing master’s degree, readying you to become a nurse educator.
If you see yourself as a healthcare facility leader, managing the operations of a top hospital or other healthcare facility, an MS in Nursing Leadership and Management will help you fulfill your goals.
Online nursing degree programs should be flexible and self-paced. An RN to MSN online program accredited by CCNE incorporates the Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Practice and the Essentials of Masters Education from Professional Practice established by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).
