The BSN to MSN Degree Path: Everything You Need to Know to Advance Your Nursing Career

So, you have already made the commitment to pursue a rewarding career helping and healing others as a registered nurse. Now, Goodwin College has made the commitment to help you advance your career by providing you with the opportunity to pursue a higher education degree through our state-accredited Master’s Degree in Nursing (MSN) program.

Whether you are in the process of finishing up your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), or already out in the field making a difference in people’s lives as an RN, Goodwin College’s MSN program provides you with the education necessary to advance your career in the highly-competitive field of nursing. Thus, making the BSN to MSN degree path as attainable as ever.

In every industry, continuing education is an essential part of ensuring professionals are working towards perfecting their current skills, acquiring new skills, and keeping well-informed of advancements and new regulations within their prospective fields. We cannot think of an industry that this applies to more than the medical field. That is why we have created an MSN degree designed to keep nurses up-to-date on relevant medical advances, and the ever-changing landscape of licensing laws within the nursing field.

Besides providing you with resources to learn more and perfect your nursing skills, what other benefits will an MSN degree provide you? Well, the short answer is a lot! Earning your Master’s degree in Nursing will open the doors to greater, higher paying job opportunities within the field. Also, once you earn your MSN degree, you can specialize in specific fields within the industry, such as pediatric care, oncology, orthopedic, or mental health care specializations.

We know what you may be thinking – ‘more classes?’, ‘more time?’, ‘more money?’. We understand that furthering your education is a commitment, which is why we offer flexible bridge programs that make the BSN to MSN transition as seamless as possible for our hard-working professionals. In the past, attaining an MSN would require an additional 3-4 years of schooling. Our MSN program can be completed part-time in as few as 20 months, allowing you to juggle all of life’s demands.

Similar to Goodwin’s BSN program, you can design your master’s program to fit into your busy schedule, with courses offered year-round. Our graduate MSN courses can be completed fully online, creating the optimal learning environment for you to pursue your MSN while still working full-time, and making the BSN to MSN trajectory convenient and flexible.

Furthermore, Goodwin’s MSN program allows you to financially invest in your MSN without giving up what is important to you. Goodwin’s team of financial aid advisors will work with you to create a personalized financial aid package that is custom to you. These trained advisors will also help you identify opportunities to offset tuition costs by helping you apply for scholarships and grants specific to students seeking an MSN degree.
