The RN-to-MS Fast Track Program allows 6 graduate credits (500 Level) taken to count toward both the Bachelor of Science and the Master of Science in Nursing degrees. This may be done when the RN meets the criteria for the Fast-Track program, and completes an application for admission to the RN-to-MS Fast-Track Program to the Graduate Nursing Program through the Graduate School. The RN-to-MS Fast-Track application process must be completed in the first semester of the RN-to-BS Program. Students in the WSU/UMMMC collaborative program apply to the on-campus RN-to-MS Program in the first semester of their first year of studies.
Fast-track students must take courses in the M.S. program the semester after completing the B.S. degree. Otherwise 500 Level courses taken in the senior year will count only towards the RN-to-BS degree unless they are in excess of the credits required for the B.S. degree. All undergraduate degree requirements must be completed before students are permitted to take MS level courses beyond NU 525 and NU 551.
