RN to MSN

  1. Hello All!
    I am currently in an ADN program and I am interested in going straight into a MSN program once I am done with my Associates. I currently have a bachelors in community health & I chose to pursue an ADN instead of a second bachelor's or MSN general entry because of cost. I've done a little research & I see schools like UIC, Rush University, and elmhurst will except ADN nurses with bachelors in something else. I would love to hear from anyone who has went this route in obtaining a MSN degree on your experience & which school you went to. Did it save u money in the long run? How hard was it to get a job in a hospital as an ADN nurse? TIA!

    I don't know if this will help but I am considering the ADN to MSN path myself. I recently graduated and passed NCLEX and have been researching several schools-but mine have been online schools.
    Schools that I know to have a RN to MSN (without BSN):
    Western Governers University (WGU)
    Indiana Weselyn University
    Chamberlin University
    These are the three that I have zeroed in on.
    I myself do NOT work in the hospital, and I did not apply to one; however, all the nursing students I know that applied to hospitals around here got the jobs they applied for.
    Hope this helps, good luck.
