Master of Nursing (MN) Pathway to Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)

This program provides a fast track from no nursing experience to becoming an advanced practice nurse or midwife. Students will earn a Master of Nursing in15-months that will allow them to license as Registered Nurses, followed by a Master of Science in Nursing that will allow them to license as nurse practitioners or certified nurse midwives.  This program is designed for students with bachelor’s degrees in other disciplines.

Overview

We offer five specialty areas in this program: Adult-Gerontology Primary Care, Family Nurse Practitioner, Certified Nurse Midwife, Pediatric Primary Care, and Women’s Health.

*Adult-Gerontology Acute Care, Emergency, Neonatal, and Pediatric Acute Care REQUIRE a minimum of one-year of RN experience to be eligible for program admission. These options are not available in the MN Pathway to MSN format. If your goal is to work in one of these specialties you should apply to the fall start MN program.

This cohort begins each year during the summer semester. Study in the MN portion of the program will be consecutive summer, fall, spring, and summer semesters. The MSN will begin the following fall semester.

*Please email nursingquestions@emory.edu with application questions.
