RN to MSN Clinical Hours Requirements

 

RN to MSN Clinical Hours Requirements

Every advanced practice nursing position requires extensive time working in a supervised clinical role; just as obtaining RN status does with an associate's degree, a bachelor's degree or a diploma. The rule of thumb for clinical hours - called a practicum - in advance practice nursing MSN programs seems to be five hundred hours minimum. No one is quite sure of the origin of this figure, but nursing schools across the country work with 500 hours as a starting point and adjust requirements as the faculty deems fit.
