The Addition of BSN After Your Name Means More Than 3 Little Letters

If you’re already a registered nurse, you may be wondering about the benefits of going back to school to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree through an RN to BSN program. Or maybe you’re just starting your nursing journey and considering whether you should pursue an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), nursing diploma or BSN.

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), BSN programs encompass all of the coursework taught in ADN (usually offered at community colleges) and diploma programs (typically administered in hospitals), with the addition of more in-depth coverage of nursing research, public and community health, nursing management, the physical and social sciences, and the humanities. Graduates of all three programs sit for the same NCLEX-RN® licensing examination.

So what does this all mean for you while weighing your educational options? See below for reasons why being a BSN-prepared nurse is a smart choice.
