Master’s Program Advanced Generalist RN (AGRN)

UMass Worcester offers a Master of Science Degree as an Advanced Generalist Registered Nurse (AGRN).  There is two pathways for the registered nurse to enter this program.  The BSN to AGRN is for nurses with a Baccalaureate degree in Nursing and the Pre- Graduate Option PGO to AGRN is for RN's with a non-nursing baccalaureate degree.  This degree does not prepare the graduate as an advanced practice registered nurse (nurse practitioner).

The BSN & PGO to AGRN program is designed for individuals with a BSN or a RN  license with a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing major (PGO). Graduates of this program are Master’s prepared RNs who are educated for various healthcare career opportunities including leadership, practice, and education across multiple health settings and populations. This program is differentiated from other similar programs, because of its combined administrative and community-based population health foci. Program flexibility allows students to take additional electives if interested in a specialty.

The GEP to AGRN program is designed for individuals who hold a minimum of a BA or BS in a non-nursing major and whose career and educational goals include nursing at the Master’s level. Students are eligible after the pre-licensure year (1st year of study) to sit for the NCLEX examination for RN licensure, followed by three additional semesters of course work. Graduates of this program are Master’s prepared RNs who are educated for various healthcare career opportunities including leadership, practice, and education across multiple health settings and populations.
