The Direct Entry MSN program is 5 semesters long. Depending on your start date, and therefore when breaks occur during the course of the curriculum, this could mean that program will be between 18 to 21 calendar months.
At the completion of the Direct Entry MSN program, you will graduate with a master’s degree in nursing. During your final semester, if interested, you will be eligible to apply to a post-master’s program. If you are accepted, there may be requirements regarding RN licensure and practice as a registered nurse before students can enroll in post-master’s clinical practicum courses. The length of time required to complete a post-master’s certificate is dependent on the option selected and whether you enroll as a full or part time student.
