CAn you go from a two year ASN to an MSN?Register Today!
- by RNIAM Aug 23, '02I am just curious if that is possible or do you have to get a BSN first? I have seen folks go from RN-BSN-MSN etc but I just want to go in to a program that in the end will give me my MSN? Who has the scoop?

- Aug 23, '02 by natsfanrnA lot of programs offer RN to MSN programs, where you "bridge" over the BSN. In most cases, you're technically taking the BSN courses in addition to the MSN courses, but some of the "BSN" credits are also applied toward your MSN...if that makes sense.
- Aug 23, '02 by Mkuehi rhona1, yes, there are rn to msn programs on campus and online. i'm just starting to check into them. there is a medical college in my area that offers such a program. i think that bsn courses are included if i'm not mistaken, i have to do some more research on it.
- Aug 23, '02 by CardioTransThere is a university here in AL that offers an RN-MSN track........ you are actually obtaining your BSN also...... you take classes for your BSN and MSN together, your credits apply toward both degrees and at the end of 2 1/2 yrs you have both.
- Aug 23, '02 by studentOHOhio State offers it..they award you the BSN in the process but you get done faster than if you were to take the two seperately. Good luck!
- Aug 23, '02 by Bonnie BlueVanderbilt University in Nashville, TN has an ADN bridge component that takes two semesters and is offered in a distance format. Then you start the MSN in the fall after the summer off. Depending on the program, you're done in a year.
