Additional admission criteria for classes beginning May 1, 2024
Preference is given to applicants with recent full-time experience relevant to the selected track. In unusual instances, the Graduate Admission and Progression Committee may consider applicants who do not meet the admission criteria. The School of Nursing reserves the right to offer programs based on the number of acceptable applicants admitted. When a program is not offered due to limited enrollment, the applicant will be notified and other admission options will be explored.
Please note that the admission requirements for the RN-MSN Early-Entry program are separate from the RN-MSN program.
For the RN-MSN program, you must complete 62 hours of prerequisite coursework. However, many of these prerequisites are classes that you more than likely completed in your associate-degree program. Additional prerequisites may be completed at the college, university or community college of your choice. If you have questions regarding prerequisites or if you have questions concerning your application's status, please call (601) 984-1080 or (601) 815-0124.
