RN to BSN Degree Offers More Opportunities

The Field of health care is booming, but there remains a critical shortage of nurses who are available to fill many available positions. Many registered nurses are earning their online degree to get their BSN or Bachelor of Science in nursing. This is regularly done while an RN continues to work. There are many benefits ties to earning your RN to BSN degree.

This is a program designed for Registered Nurse graduates of associate's degree or diploma programs who want to complete their BSN degree. It provides credit for nursing skills already learned through school or work experience. Most often these programs are available with a very flexible schedule designed to meet the needs of working nurses. Classes might meet only evenings, or weekends. Some schools have "RN-only" classes which are separate from classes taught to pre-licensure students. Many schools have multiple start dates each year for these programs, rather than just one date in the Fall. Several online RN-to-BSN programs are available. These programs are also known as Bridge Programs, BSN for RNs, Completion Programs, Nursing Mobility in Education Programs, Advanced Placement, Advanced Standing or Transition Options. Approximately 30 percent of BSN graduates annually come from RN-to-BSN programs.

Nurses who choose to do an RN to BSN program will find that they have more opportunities with specialized career training. There are many good high paying jobs that require that candidates have their BSN. The medical field is always changing and becoming more advanced. Those with continuing education will reap the benefits of great pay, and more upward mobility in their career.
