BSN Career Opportunities

The career outlook for registered nurses is very good. Earning your BSN can help you advance your career in nursing. You may have the opportunity to pursue positions as an administrator or nurse educator. Also, many specialties in nursing – such as clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, nurse-midwives, and nurse practitioners – require a Bachelor’s degree.

This program prepares students for professional holistic nursing practice.  Many nurses advance in their career by earning an advanced degree as well, and with our BSN degree you're prepared and eligible to enter a Master's or post-Master's degree program. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal had this to say:
