RN-BSN.png

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing is an important step in a long and beneficial career in nursing. Further education makes you more appealing to potential employers, prepares you for master’s programs in the future, and opens up your career to specializations that are not available at the associate’s level. The following guide will help you compare nursing degrees and determine what is right for your career goals. Earning your BSN can go a long way toward furthering your career right now and opening up future career paths that are not available to those with an Associate Degree or Diploma in Nursing.  This tool also lets you look into accreditation, programs available, and school funding. Knowing if a school provides a specific program for your degree can help you narrow your choices, and you can also choose to see only publicly or privately funded schools.

Accel.png

An accelerated nursing program allows you to earn your degree faster by not having to repeat any previous classes. With the growing demand for highly-trained nurses, accelerated nursing programs are becoming more common as they allow nurses to use their experience to opt out of courses and earn their degrees faster in order to qualify for better jobs.  Students who enter accelerated programs typically are already on the nursing track, and these programs help them climb the higher-education ladder more quickly. Because accelerated students have a good reputation for being dedicated and highly motivated, many medical facilities work with schools to offer tuition payments for students in exchange for work commitments after graduating.
