Registered nurses (RNs) that hold an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) often discover that further education is required to remain competitive. In today’s increasingly complex healthcare system, not holding a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree can hold an RN back from higher pay and advancement opportunities. Fortunately, there are many schools in Nebraska that offer a solution: the RN-to-BSN degree completion program.

Description of the RN-to-BSN program
Existing nurses who already hold an ADN can complete the RN-to-BSN program in as little as two years. Students take coursework in health assessment, gerontology, leadership in nursing practice, community health nursing, information technology, and several other advanced topics. A number of Nebraska colleges and universities offer an RN-to-BSN program, including Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln and College of Saint Mary in Omaha.

Career prospects for BSN-educated RNs
Nebraska’s major healthcare employers, like Nebraska Medical Center and the Department of Veterans Affairs, are keen to hire nurses with a BSN degree and significant work experience. While Nebraska’s RNs receive a median annual salary of $55,800, BSN-holders typically fall on the high end of the pay scale, earning $66,000 or more per year. They are also prepared to pursue graduate study for advanced practice registered nursing (APRN) roles that frequently fetch $90,000 and above annually.

To help Nebraska’s registered nurses advance their salaries and careers, we have profiled below several of the state’s top RN-to-BSN programs.
