Dominican University of California is not currently accepting Master of Science in Nursing (MSN): Clinical Nurse Leader applications and will not be enrolling students for the Fall 2014 semester. Candidates who have not completed a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program are encouraged to consider the day undergraduate BSN program. Please visit us again for the Spring 2015 semester.
The Associates to Masters accelerated degree program is designed for the nurse with an Associates degree who wants to advance quickly to the Masters level. The first year in the program is a year of bridge work, after which the student advances into the graduate program, and proceeds through the usual course work after the third semester. This program results in a Masters in Science of Nursing.
A course in advanced writing and research is a co requisite to completing the ADN bridge work. Dominican University of California offers the ENG 3200 (3 units) to fulfill this requirement or transfer equivalent from other schools.
Total 16 units bridge work. At this point, the student advances to graduate studies. Completion of both the MSN and bridgework requires 48 units.
