With quality nurses in demand, now is the time to get your education in Nursing. The Affordable Healthcare Act was recently passed in Washington, which means that nursing positions will increase even more in the near future, and the government is offering more financial aid than ever before. Those interested in a career in nursing will be best served by entering this career with a bachelor’s degree of science to elevate themselves beyond other less educated nurses.

The Bachelor program in Nursing (BSN) in West Virginia takes four years to complete, or if you already have a previous degree in a related subject, many universities offer an 18 month program which concentrates only on the nursing core curriculum.

Many colleges and universities in West Virginia offer complete nursing programs, so that the student can advance to their desired degree level. The different nursing degree programs in order of graduation are:

• BSN in nursing – typically a four year program.
• MSN (Masters of Science in Nursing) – this adds two years to a BSN.
• MS (Masters in Nursing) – specialized for the student in areas including geriatrics, pediatrics, family nursing, women’s health, neonatal, nursing leadership and more.
• Doctor of Nursing Practice – an additional two years after graduating with a Masters degree.
• PhD in Nursing – requires two additional years and a dissertation.

When searching online for a college or university, search for colleges and universities that are accredited and offer the type of degree you are interested in. You don’t want to sell yourself short, and if you decide to go on to the next level, you will want your educational resume to be as strong as possible.

When you have narrowed your findings to two or three potential programs, it is time to contact the college and request information. Look for a diverse BSN curriculum because this enlarges your career choices upon graduation.

When you have the registration forms and other information, the next step is to contact the financial aid office and begin to apply for available scholarships, grants and student loans. Also check to see what might be available directly through the academic institution, and if you qualify for any state programs as well. Your decision to enter the fast-paced and exciting nursing career in West Virginia is a major life decision and should be carefully considered.
