Frequently Asked Questions

A BSN is a degree, and an RN is a license. Some RNs with associate degrees choose to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to broaden their career opportunities, increase their salaries, and pursue leadership roles. In addition, some employers will only accept nurses with a BSN degree.

Generally speaking, BSN-trained nurses receive greater salaries than RNs with associate degrees.
