Programs include LPN/LVN, ADN, BSN, MSN, and more

The RN-to-BSN program is specifically designed to help RNs who only hold associate’s degrees to take their educations to the next level. Bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degrees make RNs more competitive in the job market, confer higher salaries, and make them qualified to take on more responsibilities in the workplace.

There are several advantages to pursuing an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN), then working toward a bachelor’s degree through an RN-to-BSN program. Associate’s degrees allow aspiring RNs to get to work sooner, and because RN-to-BSN programs are designed to work around nurses’ busy work schedules, they can work toward their bachelor’s while they’re on the job. Many employers even have tuition remission programs to incentivize their nurses to pursue higher levels of education. In addition to starting work sooner, and being able to work and study simultaneously, the RN-to-BSN route produces RNs who don’t just have a degree but also have work experience.
