Master's Entry in Nursing (MSN) for Non-Nurses

2018 Nursing Master’s Degree Best Grad School Award by U.S. News

Our Generalist Entry Master’s (GEM) program is designed for students who already have a bachelor’s degree in another field, and want to pursue a career in nursing. Our program focuses on clinical leadership and prepares students to successfully sit for the NCLEX (RN licensure exam) and Clinical Nurse Leader certification.  In addition to being prepared to function at a high level as a nurse in an inpatient, outpatient or community setting, you will also be poised to pursue an advanced practice DNP or PhD in nursing degree.

At Rush, a top-tier academic medical center, you will learn from practitioner-teachers who actually practice what they teach. You will have a different clinical experience every term providing a broad overview of all of the major specialties in which nurses work, as well as a variety of settings across the health care continuum and it starts in the first two weeks. You’ll also have volunteer opportunities to expand your education beyond Rush University Medical Center. Your professional life as a nurse begins on the first day you start as a student at Rush.
