Ditto what de2013 said. There are some graduate entry level that are kindof akin to ABSN programs. They are intended for students who have a bachelors in another field, and the programs are quicker than those that are typical nursing programs
. Might I also add, if it is a general master's degree, make sure it is a MSN if you intend to eventually be an advanced practice nurse (APN aka nurse practitioner, nurse midwife, etc). There are some master's entry level programs that grant the MN. The difference being that if you wanted to go from the MSN to an APN, you can simply go the post master's route. You cannot do this for the MN. There are extra classes required. This is simply a word of advice from a coworker who got her MN, was told she could simply do post-masters, and when she went to apply, found out that wasn't the case.... BUT that is all for the programs that include JUST the masters and NOT the specialty courses for a chosen field (i.e. pediatric NP, psych-mental health NP, family NP, nurse midwife, etc. etc. AFAIK there are barely any master's entry level programs to be a nurse anesthetist)
Anywho! If you are interested in becoming an APN, most of these programs will have you indicate your specialty at the time of the application. These programs consist of 1 year to 1.5 years of general nursing courses before sitting for the NCLEX. THEN you take your master's level courses (the specialty courses in peds, midwifery, or whatever) to get your MSN. Then after graduation you take the boards to become whatever APN specialty you have chosen.
Does that make sense? haha I wrote it kind of confusingly...I completed the application process last year and will be starting a similar program in the fall, so if you have any questions at all, feel free to let me know!
