Advance your nursing career with a Bachelor's degree


Earn your BSN degree through a qualified nursing program

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

The healthcare field is hot right now, one of the few that is steadily growing and showing security in a shaky economy. For RNs already in the field in North Dakota or those considering entering nursing, they should consider furthering their education. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Science in Nursing, there is the potential for job mobility and better opportunities. There are many alternatives that interested candidates can pursue in furthering their education in nursing in order to have better qualifications and meet the demands of the current job market. A BSN degree adds versatility and qualifications to an individual’s resume and will help them fare better in North Dakota and elsewhere.

One of the beauties of nursing is that they are usually needed in a variety of settings in each state. Even if a person obtains a BSN degree in North Dakota, that doesn’t restrict them to remaining in one area. North Dakota is the only state that ever required individuals to obtain a BSN degree before they can even practice nursing in the state, setting the bar high and ensuring that their nurses were highly educated. This became law in 1987, later to be repealed in 2003. However, it is still strongly encouraged that RNs and those beginning their education for nursing choose to pursue a bachelor’s degree. For those who are already RNs, they must have a an average of at least 2.0 while some colleges require a 3.0 on previous college level work and at least a 2.0 average on their prerequisites for nursing. They will need evidence of their previous nursing experience.

Courses include anatomy and physiology, chemistry, microbiology, psychology, nutrition science, biochemistry, and various areas of study in the healthcare field. Gerontology, adult and mental health may be a few examples. Students can choose to pursue an education at a campus-based program that could take anywhere from 2 to 4 years depending on if they have prior nursing credits or not. Online is also a popular option which is generally less expensive and very convenient in that students are able to work in courses around busy lifestyles. Once coursework is completed, graduates can obtain their license and find employment or advancement in the private and public sectors. Nurses are needed for home care, nursing homes, hospitals, clinics and private practices. There are many routes that BSN candidates can take.
