Major in Nursing | Bachelor of Science in Nursing | RN to BSN
Nursing is a rewarding career combining compassion with technology to care for those who are ill. Due to the graying of the workforce and recent lower enrollment in nursing programs, the need for highly trained nurses has gained national recognition.
Evidence-based research reflects a higher quality of care from registered nurses who hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. In addition, a BSN allows you to provide clinical expertise and assume leadership roles in the management of healthcare.
