Leverage Your Nursing Experience and Non-Nursing Bachelor Degree to Enter a Top-Ranking MSN
Bridge Programs are developed for nurses who have already earned an undergraduate bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing, but wish to pursue their graduate degree in nursing. The programs are designed to “bridge” your professional nursing experience and training with the foundational knowledge you need to be successful in a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program. To be admitted to the MSN program, the RN must complete Loyola’s BLEND Program (MSN Bridge) which is comprised of two 3-credit courses that serve as prerequisites to the graduate-level nursing courses.
