The RN Master of Science (RN-MS) option gives individuals the opportunity to earn both the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and the MS degree in Health Services Leadership and Management. The curriculum combines elements of the BSN program with the MS program by substituting the master's core courses for BSN core courses. This option is designed for both registered nurses with a baccalaureate degree in another discipline and for registered nurses who do not have a baccalaureate degree but possess the background and ability to pursue leadership and specialty preparation at the master's level. The RN-MS is offered at UMSON; however, some of the courses may be taken at The Universities at Shady Grove and online. Full-time and part-time options are available. RN-MS students must complete the full course of study within six years.
