Take your nursing skills to the next level

Attaining your BSN equips you with advanced tools and experience to meet more complex demands of healthcare. In fact, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), employers are recognizing that education makes a difference and already more than 79% of employers are now requiring or strongly preferring nurses with a bachelor’s degree.1
