Program Description

The TN eCampus MSN Program Partnership has completed its original mission, and each of the original six university partners now offer their own independent MSN Program outside of the partnership. Therefore, TN eCampus is no longer accepting new applications to the MSN Program Partnership. The MSN Program Partnership remains fully committed to allowing the students who are currently enrolled in the program to have an opportunity to successfully complete the program and to ensure they are graduating from a fully accredited program.​


Many people earn their Bachelor degree credentials in another academic area and later decide to make a career change to the Nursing profession. A bridge program is the ideal accelerated path to an MSN for RNs who hold a Bachelor's degree in an unrelated field.

All courses in the RN to MSN bridge program are completed online while clinical experiences are arranged at facilities near your home area to the fullest extent possible. Upon completion of the bridge and concentration requirements, you will earn an MSN rather than a BSN degree.

The RN to MSN bridge program is offered through a partnership with Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University, and The University of Memphis.

The Master of Science in Nursing program is fully accredited through fall 2019 by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), formerly the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).
