The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) allows students to choose one of three tracks within nursing: Nurse Administrator, Nurse Educator, and Clinical Nurse Leader®. Additionally, students may seek a post-baccalaureate certificate in any of these areas.
MSN Application/Admission Requirements
Applications are accepted on a continuous, year-round basis. It is the applicant's responsibility to submit all application documents to allow sufficient time for review prior to the intended term of admission.
The following are required to be considered for admission to the MSN program*:
- Completed Graduate Application.
- Official transcripts of all post-secondary academic course work, indicating evidence of:
- BSN degree earned at a regionally accredited institution and nursing program accredited by CNEA, ACEN or CCNE. RNs with other bachelor's degrees will be considered on an individual basis.
- Evidence of a cumulative GPA and upper division nursing coursework GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Upper division course work is defined as the junior and senior year of a traditional BSN program, all nursing course work in an accelerated BSN program, or nursing courses taken to complete the BSN portion of a RN-BSN program.
- Evidence of a current unrestricted license to practice as a registered nurse in the state in which the student will complete any practice requirements of the program.
On occasion, students can be admitted into the MSN program on a probationary status.
All transcripts should be submitted to the following address:
Queens University of Charlotte
1900 Selwyn Avenue MSC 1433
Charlotte, NC 28274
International Student Requirement
If transferring credit from a college or university outside the U.S., applicants must have their transcripts translated and evaluated independently by a certified transcript evaluation service such as World Education Services or any member of the NACES. Students should request a "course-by-course" evaluation.
International students are also required by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services to submit a confidential certified financial statement indicating the amount of funds available for their education in the United States. Full admission to the University is required before an I-20 may be issued. Graduate international students must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours each in the fall and spring terms to be eligible for an F-1 student VISA.
