Hi there! I have a BS degree (not nursing) and an ADN in nursing. I am looking for an online program to complete my RN to MSN if possible. I could go the Rn to BSN to MSN route, but was concerned about some of the MSN programs not accepting the online BSN degree. I could use some help! I am lookng for the most affordable and quickest way to get to the MSN, but would like a good program.

I know of Gonzaga and Excelsior that allow you to bypass the BSN and go directly into the MSN.

I can not find the cost of Gonzaga anywhere on their site. That is probably a sign its expensive eh? I requested more info.

Gonzaga will definitely call you back and keep calling you :) I THINK their program was about $28,000 or so, double that of Excelsior.

University of Southern Indiana has an Rn-MSN program. It is all online, with the exception of clinicals. As part of the program, you get your BSN by completing USI core requirements. And, last I inquired, it was in state tuition since it is distance learning.
