If you’re thinking about becoming a registered nurse (RN), then taking the time to pursue a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) is a worthwhile investment in your future. Employers are making it increasingly important for RNs to hold bachelor’s degrees in order to remain competitive in the field. Besides, RNs have such important responsibilities in healthcare, it is essential that you prepare for the challenges by giving yourself the best education available.

Prospective nurses must consider the costs of attending a nursing school when choosing the right program, especially since these costs differ greatly from school to school. The cost of nursing education varies because of the sheer number of factors that contribute to the bottom line. Schools in different locations will require different expenditures on necessities like books and supplies. Costs also vary based upon length of program, as well as whether the institution receives public funding.

The shorter-term nursing programs offered at Minnesota’s vocational, career, and community colleges require less training and practice than four-year degree programs. These rapid programs offer prospective nurses favorable career opportunities, provide critical knowledge, and are very efficient in both time and cost.
