Nursing is a lucrative and in-demand profession. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the U.S. is home to more than 2.7 million registered nurses (RNs). This figure is expected to increase by 19 percent over the next decade. To join this fast-growing field, many aspiring RNs choose to enroll in a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program.

Overview of the BSN degree
BSN programs prepare aspiring RNs for important work such as assisting doctors during surgery, conducting lab tests, supervising junior nursing staff, administering medications, and providing support to patients and family members. A traditional prelicensure BSN program requires four years to complete. This pathway includes coursework in human anatomy, nutrition, physiology, biology, nursing trends, and emergency care. Existing nurses who hold an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) may opt instead for an RN-to-BSN program. This pathway gives nurses credit for their ADN education and work experience, enabling them to earn a BSN degree in a streamlined manner, often while working.
