The registered nurse to bachelor of science in nursing (RN-to-BSN) program enables existing nurses who hold only associate's degrees to pursue a higher level of education without ever having to take time away from work. The RN-to-BSN program incorporates classroom learning and hands-on experience into its curriculum, bridging the gap between the associate’s degree in nursing and the bachelor of science in nursing.

One benefit of pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing degree is the advantage it gives on the job market. All across Minnesota (and the nation), employers are increasingly seeking out registered nurses who have earned bachelor’s degrees. Recently, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) issued the report “Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health” which explained that with sophisticated new healthcare technologies and more advanced levels of care, higher levels of education in the nursing field are essential.
