Bridge Program for Registered Nurses

Registered nurses with a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing can bridge into the MSN program by taking three upper-division undergraduate nursing courses (9 credits) at Monmouth University prior to taking courses in the MSN track of his or her choice. One of the three courses may be waived, at the program director's discretion if the student has already completed a college-level health assessment or an appropriate continuing education course.


  • Students without a BSN may need to complete undergraduate credits in foundation courses.
  1. Possession of a BSN from an accredited program, with a minimum 3.0 GPA. RN students with a baccalaureate degree other than nursing may be admitted into the “bridge” program.
  2. A current New Jersey RN license and one year of work experience as a registered professional nurse.  For APN tracks one year of experience in the enrolled specialty track is required before beginning the clinical specialty practicum. 
  3. A personal statement (one to two pages) outlining professional goals.
  4. Two letters of recommendation. 
  5. A college-level course in health assessment. (An appropriate continuing education course may be substituted at the program director’s discretion.) This requirement does not apply to the Nursing Administration concentration.
  6. Proof of a current $1,000,000 to $3,000,000 liability and malpractice policy.
  7. Résumé.
