Direct Entry MSN Programs
(found programs from 77 schools)

As the healthcare industry continues to grow, adult learners are turning to nursing education in order to expand career options and enhance earning potential. One of the most popular options for entering nursing school is the Direct Entry MSN or Accelerated MSN program. These programs offer a direct route into graduate nursing studies for those of you who already hold a non-nursing Bachelor's degree. BestNursingDegree.com has compiled a complete listing of all the schools offering Masters in Nursing (MSN) programs that accept non-nurses, to aid in your search for the right nursing school.

Below, you will find a complete listing of all of the schools that offer Accelerated and/or Direct Entry Master's of Nursing Degree Programs for non-nursing degree holders. Our featured schools often have more flexible options, including online coursework, which can reduce the amount of time required for program completion.

We understand that you want to build upon the degree you have, and we commend your decision to explore the field of nursing. The knowledge and experience you bring to the profession makes you a valuable addition, and will provide you with a solid foundation upon which to build your nursing education.

If you are already an RN, and are looking to continue your education by beginning graduate studies, please visit our RN to MSN/Masters in Nursing page to find the program that is right for you.

Direct Entry MSN Basics

Direct Entry MSN programs reflect the call by the National League for Nursing (NLN) to build avenues within nursing education that "facilitate and inspire the seamless academic progression of nursing students and nurses. Our common goal is a well educated, diverse nursing workforce to advance the nation's health" (NLN, 2013).

The basic format of programs that offer students with a non-nursing degree the opportunity to earn a Master's Degree in Nursing is similar to that of an Accelerated BSN program. You get to apply the credits from the general education & science classes you have already taken, and then dive into a rigorous program of nursing theory and clinical work.

There are many important things to keep in mind while researching the schools that offer these programs. Most schools design their programs so that you can complete the requirements for your BSN degree first, and then enter into a more specialized track of study for your MSN degree. Some programs also require that you practice as an RN after your BSN is earned, in order to gain valuable clinical experience and an understanding of the nursing profession.

Many fast track MSN programs require you to choose your Master's specialty track when you apply to the program, which can be both a blessing and a curse. If you decide that you want to stop at the BSN level, or if you change your focus, it can be difficult to obtain permission from the school to alter your program. However, if you are certain about the specialty MSN track that you want to pursue, you will be able to glean a great deal of knowledge and insight from your Bachelor's level courses, and you will begin classes in your area of focus as soon as they are offered. For most of the programs, you will also be entering the program with graduate student status, which has implications if you plan to apply for financial aid, such as scholarships, loans and/or grants.

Masters Level Specializations

In addition to researching the costs, hours, and other pragmatic aspects of the program, you should make sure to learn which MSN tracks/specializations are available to direct entry students. Researching those tracks and deciding which focus you want to pursue will have a significant impact on which school and program you choose. As you investigate, you will find that there are many different settings and areas of nursing that open up when you are Master's level prepared. Your graduate nursing education will prepare you for multiple avenues of practice, and will enable you to "influence healthcare outcomes for individuals, populations, or systems." (AACN, 2011)

Below are some of the most commonly offered MSN specialty tracks. You can also find more detailed information about areas of practice here.

MSN Direct Care Roles:

  • Clinical Nurse Leader
  • Nurse Educator
  • Advanced Practice RN (APRN)
  • Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist
  • Clinical Nurse Specialist
  • Certified Nurse Midwife
  • Certified Nurse Practitioner

MSN Indirect Care Roles:

  • Public Health Nurse
  • Informatics
  • Clinical Research Coordinator
  • Nurse Administrator

When you are requesting information from the schools below, be mindful of which programs offer the focus area you are interested in, and don't be afraid to obtain information on a wide variety of specialties. You should also be aware that some specialties, such as CRNA/Nurse Anesthetist, require specific clinical and work experience, and may not always be available for direct entry MSN students.

You should expect the full direct entry MSN program to take several years. While the program may be lengthy, upon completion, you will have joined one of the most promising and important healthcare fields in the market, with pay scales, responsibilities, and intellectual challenges that rival almost any other healthcare profession out there! Most importantly, you will be one of thousands of others who are working toward improving the health and wellness of our world, one nurse and one education at a time.
