Students who attend four-year colleges and universities traditionally earn bachelor’s degrees, though many schools also offer postgraduate opportunities such as a master’s or doctor’s degree. These colleges focus on a well-rounded education, often requiring undergraduates to take a substantial number of general education courses. Some of the major universities in Kansas where you can pursue such a broad education include the University of Kansas, Wichita State University, and Kansas Wesleyan University.

Four-year colleges tend to be more expensive than community colleges, due to both higher annual tuition costs as well as the longer-term commitment. (Community colleges typically only offer two-year degrees.) However, a degree from a four-year university can make you a much more attractive candidate to employers, who are increasingly looking for graduates with higher levels of education. Earning a bachelor’s degree or even a master’s degree, as opposed to an associate’s degree from a community college, will help you stand out from the crowd when you apply for nursing jobs.

A bachelor’s degree will especially benefit you when pursuing a job as a registered nurse (RN). In Kansas, the median income for registered nurses was $55,780 per year in 2013, though a bachelor’s degree can help you land some of the higher-paying jobs that offer $66,320 or more annually. Employers like Salina Regional Health Center, St. Francis Health Center, and North Kansas City Hospital are always seeking highly qualified candidates.
