As Missouri’s medical centers focus on employing highly qualified healthcare professionals, there is an increasing preference for registered nurses (RNs) with a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree. Fortunately, in response to this shift, many of Missouri’s top nursing schools offer an RN-to-BSN program that allows existing nurses with an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) to complete their baccalaureate education.

Description of the RN-to-BSN program
A traditional prelicensure BSN program requires four years of study. However, because ADN students have already completed a two-year degree, RN-to-BSN programs can take just two additional years to complete. Coursework includes leadership in nursing practice, information technology, health assessment, and aging studies. RN-to-BSN programs also feature higher levels of clinical experience in nonhospital settings. Missouri has a plethora of RN-to-BSN degree completion programs, including offerings at major public universities like Southeast Missouri State University, University of Central Missouri, and Missouri State University.

Career outlook for BSN-educated RNs
BSN-holders can expect a variety of employment and advancement opportunities. These may be at private healthcare institutions like Barnes-Jewish Hospital or Missouri Baptist Medical Center, or at government agencies like the Department of Veterans Affairs. Missouri also offers competitive nursing salaries. The state’s typical RN earns $57,000 per year. However, BSN-educated nurses frequently receive $70,000 or more in annual pay. Those who later pursue graduate study can earn well over $100,000 per year.

If you are interested in enhancing your nursing career, consider the RN-to-BSN pathway. Our list below of Missouri’s top RN-to-BSN programs will help you get started.
