Students enrolling in the Bridge Program must take up to 4 undergraduate course units prior to matriculating into the MSN program.

Students must take one of the following two courses:

  • NUR210 Professional Role I (Learner) or
  • NUR310 Professional Role II (Clinician)


  • NUR328
  • NUR440 Community Health: Science*
  • NUR444 Community Health: Practice*

* Students who have significant community health expertise and experience may apply for a waiver of up to 8 credits of community health (NUR 440 and/or NUR 444). Waiver is based on a portfolio review by the Department of Nursing Faculty.

Upon completion of required bridge courses, students may begin taking graduate courses in the Adult/Gerontological Primary Care NP, Family NP, Neonatal NP or the Clinical Nurse Leader MSN program.

Owing to exceptionally high enrollment and retention, the Department of Nursing has no capacity for external transfer students seeking admission to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program for the 2022-2023 academic year. This notice will be updated if capacity allows for applications to be submitted through the Office of Admissions for the 2023-2024 academic year.
