Overview

A bachelor’s degree is becoming standard for nurses, but you can take your education even further—all the way to your MSN. Build advanced skills and knowledge to confront the growing impact of diabetes with an online Master’s in Diabetes Nursing. Capella’s online, CCNE-accredited* RN-to-MSN  Diabetes Nursing program—in conjunction with your RN license and 135 quarter credits of undergraduate work— is the most efficient and affordable path to your MSN, allowing you to bridge your RN to an MSN in as little as two years without the additional time and expense of earning a BSN.
