Whether you want to specialize in pediatrics, trauma, or community health, getting your degree will give you the knowledge and experience you need to reach your goals. You will be qualified for better jobs, have more experience, and make networking contacts necessary for a successful nursing career.

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing prepares students for a rewarding and challenging career as a nurse. While studying for your BSN, you will take classes in anatomy, physiology, and advanced patient care.

Accelerated BSN programs take just one year of study and are perfect for individuals who already hold a Bachelor’s degree in a related subject.

RNs with Bachelor of Science in Nursing degrees can make almost $20,000 more a year than RNs with Associate Degrees in Nursing.
