If you’re being passed over for registered nursing (RN) jobs, one way to make yourself a more compelling candidate is to pursue more education. The healthcare field is constantly evolving, and more and more employers are favoring RNs with bachelor’s degrees in the hiring process. If you entered the field with an associate’s degree, there are good options for you to pursue the education that will help you jumpstart your career.

The RN-to-BSN program is meant to help people like you who are already licensed RNs. It builds upon the courses you took in your associate’s degree program to move you toward a bachelor’s degree. This means you can convert your associate’s degree into a bachelor’s degree without having to start over at a traditional four-year university.

Find a school

In Kentucky, large employers like Aetna, the Catholic Health System, Consulate Health Care, and the Department of Veterans Affairs are all looking for better educated and better trained employees. Converting your associate’s degree into a bachelor’s degree should give you an edge in your job search. With 42,400 employed RNs in the state, anything that sets you apart can be helpful.

In Kentucky, you could expect to make around $56,700 annually as an RN. However, with a bachelor’s degree, you can often negotiate your way to the upper end of the pay scale, sometimes earning $66,900 or more.
