RN TO APN

In earning your Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) you will have the ability to become an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN). Many MSN programs focus on specific APN concentrations in the later courses of the program to prepare enrolled students to become licensed Advanced Practice Nurses. APN licenses are issued on a state by state basis, so it’s important to know your states specific nursing licensure requirements.

There are four main areas of advanced practice nursing: nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, clinical nurse specialists, and certified nurse anesthetists. Since becoming an APN requires an MSN or Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) it’s very important to know which area of advanced practice nursing you’d like to focus on when choosing an MSN program.
