Why Complete a BSN?


A nurse who holds a Bachelor's degree in nursing will have significant advantages in securing employment over a nurse who holds a diploma or Associate's degree. Many entry level nursing positions either require or strongly prefer applicants with four year degrees over nurses coming through a diploma/certificate program or an Associate's degree program.



Nurses with higher levels of education also command higher salaries. Whether it id your first nursing job or you are negotiating your salary after being employed for a couple of years, having a BSN will work to your advantage in seeking higher wages and benefits.



If you are currently working as a registered nurse and wish to enter a new field of employment you will be better prepared if you possess a Bachelor's degree. Even if your Bachelor's degree is in Nursing, it will still provide the advantages associated with a four-year college degree. Many jobs across different sectors of the economy require a minimum Bachelor's level education for consideration.



Another advantage of earning your BSN degree is so that you can open doors to new positions within the nursing profession. Nursing management positions as well as many nursing specialty fields require job candidates to be licensed registered nurses, have several years of experience and hold a four-year degree. By completing a BSN degree program you will be one step closer to having a greater selection of nursing jobs to choose from.
