A master of science in nursing (MSN) program is an attractive option for registered nurses (RNs) wishing to move into management, advanced practice, or public health nursing. MSN programs provide students with the tools needed to practice and compete in the ever-changing healthcare landscape.

Overview of MSN programs
MSN programs prepare nurses for positions such as nurse anesthetist, nurse midwife, nurse practitioner, or head nurse. An MSN is often the prerequisite for a doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program, and it is a required credential for nurse educators. A typical MSN program takes up to two years to complete full-time, or three to four years part-time.
