The career outlook for registered nurses is very good. Earning a BSN can help to advance your career in nursing. You may have the opportunity to pursue positions as an administrator or nurse educator. Many specialties in nursing—clinical nurse specialist, nurse anesthetist, nurse-midwife, and nurse practitioner—require a bachelor’s degree. Also, many new ADN graduates are being asked by their employers to finish a BSN within 5–6 years. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, “registered nurses with at least a bachelor’s degree in nursing will have better job prospects than those without one” (2012).
To be admitted to the BSN Completion program, applicants must have an associate degree in nursing (ADN) or a registered nurse diploma from a regionally-accredited college or technical school. Also, students must show documentation of an active U.S. registered nurse license or its international equivalent prior to beginning the second session of nursing courses in the program. The program offers a generous transfer policy, relevant coursework, and personalized attention.
Viterbo’s BSN degree completion program is an online or hybrid program that allows students to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree following the completion of an associate or diploma degree in nursing. This flexible and personalized program is designed for working nurse professionals looking to complete their bachelor’s degree within one year, 18 months, or three years.
