RN to BSN

The RN to BSN is an excellent method for RNs to obtain a bachelor of science in nursing degree.  In a program of this nature, credits from your associate nursing programs are applied to you bachelor’s degree.  Online RN to BSN programs allow students to continue working as a registered nurse while they complete their nursing degree.  Many students are able to complete their mandatory clinical hours by the time they’re done with school.  This is great timing for many of the nursing certifications that require 1-2 years experience within various nursing jobs. 

With a bachelor’s degree, you spend more time studying particular areas of nursing which prepares you more fully for a great career in the field.  With 4 years of study, you’ll have plenty of study opportunities within elective course subjects.  This is where many students choose a special area of nursing to study. By the time you graduate, you should have a good idea of which areas of nursing you’re most interested in and will be able to obtain certifications in one or more areas once you’ve graduated and obtained the necessary experience required for certifications.
