What is the fastest route to obtaining a nursing degree from GCU?

The length of time it takes to earn one of our online nursing degrees will depend on your previous education and individual schedule. RN to BSN candidates who want to earn an MSN can accelerate their nursing education by choosing the BSN to MSN Fast Track Option. The MSN Fast Track Option simulates an RN to MSN program in duration. Complete two graduate-level courses from your chosen MSN emphasis as electives toward meeting the BSN requirements.

Can I complete the MSN degree fully online?

All nursing degrees require some form of direct clinical experience or practicum that allows students to demonstrate achievement of clinical competency at the baccalaureate or master’s levels. For many online nursing programs, students complete their clinical requirements in their local community. Many students find that these experiences not only enhance their knowledge of leadership and public health but also lead to meaningful change in their local health organization or community.

I knew as soon as I graduated with a BSN in nursing that I would continue to advance in nursing by one day returning to school. Grand Canyon University’s program provides me with the flexibility to continue to work in a career I love while pursuing an advanced degree. I am able to complete classes by having the hybrid online and in-classroom experience. I look forward to the challenges and experience this next year will provide in bringing me one step closer to my degree.”
