MSN – RN-to-MSN General Nursing (CCNE-accredited)

Make the most of your educational investment, expand your career possibilities, and meet the growing demand for highly skilled nurses in a streamlined MSN specialization. Part of Capella’s CCNE-Accredited MSN program, this specialization transforms your RN license and your previous 135 quarter credits of undergraduate course work into an accelerated pathway toward your Master of Science in Nursing. You also have the flexibility to choose one of six emphases—choose any pairing of diabetes nursing, gerontology nursing, nurse educator, and nursing leadership and administration. Grow your knowledge of health care—from policy and technology to patient education and health promotion—with a curriculum that incorporates the Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice and the Essentials of Master's Education for Advanced Practice Nursing established by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Put your courseroom learning into real-world action through five field experiences, each connected to a specific course. People who choose this specialization are often seeking roles as nurse educators, diabetes specialists, gerontological nurses, or nurse executives in a variety of health care delivery settings. 

Review of this program is pending in WA.

This specialization is not designed to prepare graduates for entry-level or advanced practice licensure as a nurse.
