As the population of the United States ages and our world becomes ever more complex, so do patient needs. It is increasingly important, therefore, for nurses to be well-trained in order to meet the challenges of patient care. As a result, there has been a marketplace shift towards requiring bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) education for registered nurses.

There are two main categories of BSN offerings – pre-licensure programs that prepare students for the NCLEX-RN examination, and RN-to-BSN programs that enable working nurses to earn a BSN degree. These programs are offered at a variety of institutions in Arizona, including Arizona College and Chamberlain College of Nursing. RN-to-BSN programs in particular are likely to offer evening classes or flexible schedules, which allow working nurses to earn a BSN degree despite work and family commitments.
