Admission Requirements

Admission to the RN-MSN program is open to registered nurses with either an ASN or BSN. If you have an ASN, you might need to take bridge or prerequisite courses before you begin taking classes in the MSN program.

If you have a BSN, you might need to take additional undergraduate courses before you can begin the courses in the MSN program. Our sample course plans give you an idea of the classes you might need to take.

Requirements for admission to the RN-MSN program include:

  • Application and fee
  • Resume
  • Essay/goal statement
  • Minimum 3.0 GPA

Transfer Credits

You may be able to transfer credits from courses you took at another regionally accredited institution to the RN-MSN program. We conduct an official transfer credit evaluation on all completed coursework after admission to the program. If you have any questions about transferring credits, an Admissions Coordinator is happy to answer them.

Program and Financial Aid Details

The program consists of 32 total trimester credit hours and can be completed in as few as 18 months.

RN-MSN students who work in the Florida Hospital System can use employer reimbursement to pay for their degree. To reach the education assistance team, call 407-303-3452 or email them at FH.Tuition.Reimbursement@ahss.org. Your director will need to approve you for reimbursement. After you’ve received approval, the education assistance team will work with ADU Online to help manage the reimbursement while you earn your degree.

If you aren’t an employee of Florida Hospital, contact your employer directly to see if it offers tuition reimbursement or speak with an Admissions Coordinator at ADU.
