The goal of a BSN degree program is to prepare students to take the NCLEX-RN exam this is required for the student to become a registered nurse. Students in the program will learn what their role is as a nursing professional. To begin, you will be required to complete the prerequisites in order to gain admittance into a BSN program.

You will be learning from basic classes, such as chemistry and the sciences. After two years you will be taking clinicals. This will allow you to learn from nurses who have been in the field for some time. Some BSN programs in Texas will require you to have a computer. You will need to inquire from your chosen university about exactly the type of computer will be required for the program.

You will have a number of places you can work once you have passed your nursing boards. You can work in almost any medical setting including hospitals, long-term care facilities, senior housing communities, private doctor’s offices, community health clinics and more. Another emerging field to work in is with pharmaceutical and insurance companies. If you love children you can work as a school nurse. The opportunities are definitely wide and expanding as time goes by. If you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the hospital you can find a job in home care that will offer a slower paced work environment. The BSN degree also prepares the student to continue on to graduate-level education.
