IWU offers an ASN-MSN program modeled after an RN to MSN program that builds upon the students’ prior educational and professional experiences through adult learning modalities.


Students have the opportunity to choose between the Nursing Education and Nursing Administration track. The bridge program curriculum aligns with the mission of Indiana Wesleyan University’s School of Nursing and embraces a global perspective of healthcare. Bachelor’s 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 RN-MSN 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 of Nursing degree level, in accordance with the Academy recommendations.

Practicum hours for this School of Nursing program 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.
