The ASN-MSN program builds upon the students’ prior educational and professional
experiences through adult learning modalities. The curriculum aligns with the mission of
Indiana Wesleyan University and embraces a global perspective of healthcare. Bachelor
level courses deliver upper level nursing education content as prescribed by the American
Association of Colleges of Nursing in The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for
Professional Nursing Practice. The Essentials content serves as the foundation for successful
completion of the graduate level nursing coursework.
The pace of this fully online program is rapid and students are encouraged to make learning
and professional growth their aim. While academically rigorous, the ASN-MSN program
provides the opportunity for seamless progression from the associate to the master degree
level, in accordance with the Academy recommendations.
Practicum hours are included in graduate level coursework. A global travel option is
available during the program. Upon completion of the ASN-MSN program, graduates will
be eligible for certification in their respective track specialty.
