Bachelor’s Degree = More Opportunity

More Opportunity to Advance

Today a bachelor’s degree is a necessity to be competitive in the nursing field. In fact, the Institute of Medicine is recommending that 80 percent of U.S. nurses have a bachelor’s degree by 2020, and many healthcare facilities won’t hire nurses without one. By making the time now to earn your BSN, you’ll have a lifetime of opportunity in the future.

More Opportunity to Serve

Our unique, 100% online RN to BSN program will grow your knowledge and strengthen your community care and leadership abilities, opening the door to opportunities in rural healthcare settings, large hospitals, management or wherever your dreams may take you.

More Opportunity to Design Your Life

According to PayScale, nurses with a bachelor’s degree earn almost 15 percent more than those without one. Better pay means more freedom to create the lifestyle you want, whether it’s travel, charitable works, a new home or saving for your child’s education.
