For the RN-MSN program, you must complete 63 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. Please note that there have been changes to the prerequisite courses, and these new and/or revised prerequisites will become effective for students who will be starting the RN-MSN program in the 2014 semester.
