Thorough Nursing Education

A BSN will help you advance your nursing career and qualify you for positions you are ineligible for now. Our program teaches a variety of important nursing skills and theories including health informatics, caring for aging populations, and leadership. You will take courses on statistics, healthcare policy, health assessment, and other key aspects of the nursing practice. With a background in these and other areas, you will have new knowledge and skills employers highly value.

Demand for RNs is expected to grow 16 percent through 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This growth rate is significantly faster than the average rate for all professions. As BSN trained nursing staff becomes standard in hospitals and facilities across the nation, job prospects for graduates will continue to broaden beyond what is available to nurses who lack this credential.
