RN to BS and RN to MS
This RN-BS program is for RN students (currently licensed as an RN) pursuing a BS as a nursing major. A total of 120 credits must be completed to earn a BS degree. Upon admission to the nursing major at Salisbury University, students may receive up to sixty (60) academic transfer credits from their Associate Degree Program. They will therefore need to complete additional credits (see checklist below) for the BS degree. At least 30 of the credits must be upper division courses taken at SU. Upon satisfactory completion of all prerequisite and required coursework, Registered Nurses with an active unencumbered Maryland or compact RN license will be awarded 30 additional credits after completion of all required coursework at Salisbury University.
The RN-MS program is for academically talented RN students who do not have a bachelor’s degree in nursing and wish to pursue a master’s degree in nursing in the Nurse Educator of Health Care Leadership concentrations. In this option, students earn a graduate degree with a 12-credit efficiency over the more traditional route where BS and MS degrees are pursued separately.
Upon admission to the nursing major at Salisbury University, students may receive up to 60 transfer credits from their associate degree program. After completing all non-nursing requirements and 12 of the 18 required undergraduate nursing credits, students having a GPA of 3.0 or higher may apply to the graduate nursing program. If accepted, and after completion of the remaining six required undergraduate nursing credits, students take 12 credits of graduate core courses-epidemiology, applied statistics, quantitative and qualitative research (rather than 12 credits of SU undergraduate nursing and non-nursing electives) and then continue with the courses in the Master’s concentration they have selected (Nurse Educator or Health Care Leadership). Upon completion of the graduate curriculum, students are awarded 30 additional credits based on their active unencumbered Maryland or compact license and receive a Master of Science in nursing.
