Fast-Track B.S. to M.S. in Nursing for RN to BSN Online Students

If you are enrolled in the RN to BSN Online program and have a GPA of 3.3 or higher in your nursing courses, you may petition to complete graduate-level coursework after completing four undergraduate online RN to BSN courses and thus shorten the time needed to complete the M.S. in Nursing degree.

The Fast-Track program allows you to substitute two graduate courses for undergraduate nursing courses as follows:

  • GNUR 507 – Health Policy (2) –and– GNUR 508 – Healthcare Delivery Systems (2)
    in place of NURS 458 – Contemporary Professional Issues (4)


  • GNUR 543 Advanced Pathophysiology (3)
    in place of NURS 459 – Capstone Professional Portfolio (3)

You may petition to take graduate courses after completing four undergraduate online RN to BSN courses with a GPA of 3.3 by submitting the Petition for Graduate Courses [pdf]

NOTE: Approval to take graduate courses does not guarantee admission to the M.S. programs.

If you wish to continue your graduate studies at Fisher, you must complete the application process for graduate admissions. Please contact the Office of Graduate Admissions for more information at (585) 385-8161.
