I was in a similar situation as you on my journey to becoming a registered nurse. I graduated with a BA in liberal arts with a major in psychology. I didn't want my undergrad degree to go un-used so I wanted to complete an accelerated entry level nursing program so I spent some time looking around for programs. In the Twin Cities area the U of M (Home - NURS - MN, University of Minnesota
) has a Masters of Nursing program designed as a masters level entry level nursing program for students with a bachelors degree in nursing. It requires a full time of study commitment but it gets you in and ready to take boards in 16 months, and you earn a masters degree. St. Catherine's University also has a variety of entry level nursing options for students with a bachelors degree such as earning an associate degree, they used to have a post-bachelors program to earn a nursing major but they are working on making that an entry level masters degree (Nursing :: Post-Baccalaureate Major
). In Wisconsin UW-Milwaukee SON has a Masters of Nursing program similar to the U of M that is a direct entry program preparing students as masters prepared advanced generalists (UWM College of Nursing MN Direct Entry
). From what I was finding when I was searching myself many of the programs for those already having bachelors degrees are the direct entry masters degree programs which I know from now working in nursing are some what controversial as to how one is received by the staff on their unit having a masters degree in nursing with no practical experience in the field to back the degree. I, myself, ended up earning an ADN (associates degree) as I wasn't able to relocate to an area where I could do a direct entry graduate program and still work full time and pay my bills, etc. I'm happy I choose to enter nursing and I love my role as an RN. I wasn't happy to have to earn an associates degree after already having a bachelors but the program prepared me well. I'm no working on completing my BSN part time, I only need to take 30 credits to earn the bachelors degree in nursing, and the university I am attending is substituting masters degree course work in for some of the bachelors degree classes so I get to knock out two birds with one stone. Good luck.
