The healthcare system relies heavily on registered nurses (RNs) to perform a broad range of tasks. They assist physicians with their workloads, plan and assess patient care, administer medications to patients, provide support for patients and family as they cope with serious illnesses, and supervise junior nurses and support staff. Because of their increasing role in the healthcare system, RNs benefit greatly from deep healthcare and science education.

Although it is possible to become a registered nurse through an associate’s degree program, these RNs are finding it difficult to remain competitive in the job market. It is increasingly important for RNs to earn a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree -- not only to become better educated, but also to avoid missing out on fulfilling employment opportunities. Fortunately, there are many schools in Maine that offer RN-to-BSN programs, specifically designed for nurses who want to further their education.

RN-to-BSN programs typically take two years to complete. They include numerous science courses and significant hands-on training in the field. There is an accelerated track for RNs who have bachelor’s degrees in other fields. Most programs can be completed on a part-time basis, and many have flexible class times, so nurses can continue working while they study. Additionally, many employers in the state of Maine offer tuition reimbursement to incentivize their employees to pursue higher degrees of education.
