About Rush University
The Role

The direct entry master's (MSN) for non-nurses: generalist entry master's (GEM) clinical nurse leader (CNL) program at Rush University College of Nursing comprehensively prepares students, in a two-year full-time curriculum, to be a graduate (MSN) registered nurse (RN) clinician with a focus in clinical leadership. Graduates are prepared to function at a high level in inpatient, out-patient and community settings. This program is for students who already have a bachelor's degree in an area other than nursing.
