The Benefits of Becoming a Baccalaureate-Prepared Nurse
The Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) track enables graduates of Associate Degree and Diploma Programs of Nursing to meet nationally recognized healthcare imperatives. Baccalaureate-prepared registered nurses have the advantage. The trend for hospitals, schools, health departments and health care offices is to have the BSN as a hiring requirement for most if not all positions. This is in response to research demonstrating that higher levels of nursing education lead to more positive patient outcomes. Additionally, a BSN provides nurses with the additional knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for navigating the complexity of healthcare in diverse settings. BSN educated registered nurses contribute to and lead quality and safety initiatives for the continuous improvement of patient care, and serve as partners in the redesign and advancement of healthcare. Holding a BSN degree provides opportunities for leadership and professional advancement, increased earnings potential, and graduate study.
