Become a Nurse in Mesa with the Direct Entry MSN

Alverno offers career changers the opportunity to enter the nursing field at an accelerated pace with the Direct Entry MSN program. The DEMSN program is built for those who already have a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field and is the only program in the region to award graduates both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Nursing. The 18- to 20-month, full-time program is designed to prepare students to sit for the NCLEX licensing exam.
