If a degree is an RN-MSN degree, are the credits considered graduate credits?


I think the title pretty much says it all...does anybody know?

Sounds to me like the first year or so would be you attaining your BSN, so those classes would not be graduate level classes. Once you finish your undergrad classes and start on the "MSN" part of the program, then you would be taking graduate classes.

Look at the course numbers. At my university, courses numbers pertain to the level. Undergraduate classes are numbered 1000 - 4999, and graduate classes are 5000 and above.

Our RN-MSN program has some classes in the 4000 range (4th year undergrad) and some in the 5000 and 6000 ranges (graduate credit).

Depends on how the individual school defines the courses.
