Why Earn Your RN-BSN Degree Now?

Demand for registered nurses is expected to grow 15% between 2016 and 2026, much faster than the national average for all occupations.

States including New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island have proposed to introduce the “BSN in 10” initiative, legislation that would require future RNs to obtain a BSN degree for re-licensure within 10 years’ time. And, while there are currently no states that require a BSN to practice, the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, and U.S. Air Force do require that their members hold a bachelor’s degree in order to practice medicine as an active-duty registered nurse.§

Many employers and leadership groups recognize the unique value bachelor’s-prepared nurses can bring to these professional settings:

  • Community organizations
  • Federal agencies
  • Military leadership
  • Nursing organizations
  • Healthcare foundations
  • Magnet hospitals
  • Minority nurse advocacy groups

As an RN, you’re already making a difference. There is no better time to pursue a BSN degree on your terms.
