Has anyone ever heard of an ADN to MSN program? No BSN involved?
klone, MSN, RN
I've heard of RN to MSN programs, but they usually award you both the BSN and the MSN.
That's what I was talking about. Man, that would be great!
Check with Walden University. I am starting there this fall. It is totally online. accredited. My hospital worked out a 1/2 price deal with them so that the total cost including books is covered by tuition reimbursement. They have a web site just search for Walden University.
University of Michigan has a program like that and I plan to try my best to get into it a couple years after I graduate with my ADN if at all possible. It will depend of course on if we could sell the house and move, if I could go without working full-time, etc., etc. :)
There are a few schools in my area (NJ) who claim to have this. They state is is for students with a BA/BS in another field.
As an aside, personally, I would be a little hesitant to go into a program that doesnt offer the BSN in the process... I would hate to work towards the MSN, have something happen, have to stop, and have nothing to show for it.

Michael - Do they give you a BSN once completed as well?
No they do not award a BSN it is a straight through program to MSN. They offer a program for BSN-MSN 2years and ADN-MSN 3 yrs.
Here is a list of schools that offer RN-MSN programs:
RosesrReder, BSN, MSN, RN
The university around here does this exactly. You must be an RN then they will award you a BSN and ultimately an MSN :)
twinmommy+2, ADN, BSN, MSN
The ADN-MSN in my area is from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. They do give you the BSN on the way to the MSN. I don't think its online though. Its pretty fast paced in the class.
