Students enrolled part-time can go from an ADN to a BSN in four semesters and earn a MSN in about three years. Students with a bachelor’s degree in another field that have an ADN with work experience as a licensed registered nurse should apply directly to the MSN program, as GW School of Nursing offers a bridge pathway.
Students do coursework online and complete the clinical practicum rotations in their local communities. The distance based format allows professional nurses to advance their education with access to GW’s resources and expert faculty while continuing to work in their community. A few on-campus experiences allow students to work directly with faculty and other students.
