Registered nurses (RNs) have come to play a crucial role in the medical field. Not only do RNs have rewarding careers, but it is also a lucrative and in-demand profession. Earning a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) is a great way to launch your career as an RN. In addition to offering many general education courses, BSN programs provide future RNs with strong backgrounds in nursing-specific fields like human anatomy, physiology, nutrition, biology, trends in nursing, and emergency care. BSN programs also provide supervised clinical experience, training students for practical tasks such as performing lab work, administering medication, assisting doctors during surgery, providing patient and family support for coping with specific illnesses, and supervising other staff members.

It typically takes four years to complete a BSN program for full-time students. However, there are accelerated tracks available to students who are new to nursing but hold bachelor’s degrees in other fields. There are also special RN-to-BSN programs, which generally take two years, available for registered nurses who only hold associate’s degrees to continue their education. Employers within the healthcare field want their nurses to be as educated as possible, and many even offer tuition reimbursement for nurses who decide to go back to school. These programs can be completed part-time, and many offer night classes so that people can work and study at the same time.
