Utah’s healthcare providers increasingly expect registered nurses (RNs) to perform a broad range of independent tasks and to fill critical managerial roles. As a result, many top hospitals and healthcare centers actively seek RNs with at least a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree. Utah has two types of BSN programs: prelicensure programs that prepare aspiring nurses for initial licensure, and RN-to-BSN programs that help existing nurses with only an associate’s degree earn their bachelor’s degree.

Prelicensure BSN programs typically require four years of fulltime study. They develop a broad range of abilities, including clinical nursing knowledge, team leadership, and research skills. At the end of the program, candidates must pass the NCLEX-RN national examination in order to gain licensure. Utah has a half-dozen schools with prelicensure BSN programs, including Brigham Young University, Westminster College, and University of Utah.

RN-to-BSN programs grant their students credit for prior associate’s degree coursework and on-the-job training. As a result, these degree completion programs typically require just two years of study. Because they focus on working adults, many RN-to-BSN programs offer innovative delivery models like online-only classes. A broad swath of Utah’s nursing schools offer BSN completion programs, including Stevens-Henager College’s four campuses in Layton, Lehi, Ogden, and Provo.

Registered nurses with a BSN degree enjoy very favorable job prospects. Utah’s 18,000 RNs earn a median annual salary of $59,000. BSN-educated nurses frequently land in the top pay quartile, earning $69,000 and above annually. Nursing salaries are several thousand dollars higher in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area.
