RN to MS Prerequisites

Nursing graduate

The Post-Baccalaureate RN to MS prerequisites are designed for the registered nurse (RN) who has a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing. The completion of these prerequisites prepares you for eligibility to continue your education in the Master of Science program in nursing at Le Moyne College. 

Complete just five prerequisites on a part-time basis, either through credit-bearing courses offered online, in the evenings on campus, or through a combination of coursework and transfer credits, and you will be prepared for graduate-level study at Le Moyne.

Le Moyne Nursing Students

Students may transfer in two equivalent courses of the five courses listed above (with a grade of C or better), but at least three courses must be taken at Le Moyne College in order to complete the prerequisites successfully. There is no time limit for courses used for transfer. Students must achieve a minimum grade of C in each course to fulfill the prerequisites for application to one of the master's programs.
