MSN Degree Benefits


An individual who holds a Master's level degree in nursing has a wide range of employment opportunities available to them. Having your MSN degree allows you to go beyond typical nursing duties and perform managerial roles and hold administrative positions. Nurses with their Master's degree can also expect higher average salaries throughout their careers. Having an MSN also gives a competitive advantage over other less qualified applicants. Nurses with Master's level education can also pursue various nurse practitioner programs which offer the ability to provide highly specialized health care services.

Types of RN to MSN Programs


There are a few different kinds of RN to MSN nursing programs available. The programs listed on this page are mainly classroom-based, but many schools also offer online RN to MSN programs where students can learn at their own pace.
