Earn your BSN degree through a qualified nursing program

Many colleges offer qualified nursing degree programs. Take advantage of current nursing job opportunities

Nursing is an excellent profession for students who excel in the sciences and have a keen desire to care for others. With the advancing age of Baby Boomers, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts increased employment for registered nurses within the next decade.

There are several options for students looking to pursue a nursing degree, including traditional on-campus programs and non-traditional distance learning or online schools. New Hampshire currently has six traditional schools which offer a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree, including public and private institutions. The largest of these is the University of New Hampshire in Durham. Keene State College, Plymouth State University, Rivier College, Saint Anselm College and Colby-Sawyer College also offer degree programs for nursing students. All schools are located in the southern half of the state with Colby-Sawyer the furthest north.

Rivier and Saint Anselm Colleges are both private, Catholic schools. Colby-Sawyer is also private, but with no religious affiliation. The remaining schools are public, state sponsored institutions. The University of New Hampshire’s traditional BSN program takes four years and requires 128 credits for graduation. Clinical courses begin in the sophomore year and continue until completion of the program. Prerequisite courses must be passed before a student can be accepted into the nursing program.

For some students, an on-campus program isn’t feasible. Online learning can be the best option in these cases. Schools such as Walden, Kaplan, Liberty and Grand Canyon Universities have RN to BSN programs. These programs are for students who are currently licensed registered nurses who wish to complete their training and receive a bachelor’s degree. BSN programs such as these generally take at least eighteen months to two years of full-time attendance.

A nursing degree candidate needs to have strong math and science skills. Many universities require incoming students to have a minimum grade of C in these courses. In addition, once students are accepted to the university’s program they must pass their core nursing classes with a grade of C or better.

Entry level nurses can expect an average pay of $40,000 with experienced nurses bringing in $65,000. The occupation outlook for nurses is good as many areas of the country are experiencing a nursing shortage. Nursing is an excellent occupation for those who enjoy travel as nursing jobs are generally easier to find than other types of employment.
