To be truly competitive on the job market, it is becoming increasingly important for aspiring registered nurses (RNs) to attain bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degrees. Although it is possible to become an RN with only an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN), employers consistently prefer to hire candidates with more education. BSN degrees prepare registered nurses well for the challenges they face on the job, qualify them to administer higher levels of patient care, enable them to take on more responsibility at work, and make them eligible to receive higher salaries.

The RN-to-BSN program is specifically designed to help RNs who only hold associate’s degrees to take their education to the next level. RN-to-BSN programs are designed to work around nurses’ busy work schedules, allowing them to work toward their bachelor’s degree without ever having to take time away from work. Many employers even have tuition reimbursement 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 when they graduate, but also have work experience.
