RN to BSN Dual Acceptance Program

  • MSUM's Dual Acceptance Program (RN to BSN) offers you distinct advantages beyond our traditional RN to BSN competitive application process.

    • Coordinated progression plan starting before you even graduate with your ASN for the most credit efficient path to your BSN
    • Bypass the traditional application process
    • University application fee waived

    If you graduate from one of our partner schools with an AS in Nursing, you may be eligible to complete your BSN through the Dual Acceptance Program:

    • Central Lakes College
    • Lake Superior College
    • North Dakota State College of Science
    • Northland Community & Technical College


    1. Submit the Dual Acceptance Program Intent to Continue to BSN form.
      NOTE: It is highly recommended you declare your Intent to Continue to BSN early in your ASN program to follow the most credit efficient path toward your BSN.
    2. Submit application for admission to MSUM within one year of RN to BSN program start. Application fee is waived!
    3. Graduate with an AS in Nursing from a partner school. Nursing program admission is provisional upon successful NCLEX exam and full licensure.
    4. Register for nursing courses at MSUM within one year following your AS in Nursing graduation.
