Advance your degree… Advance your career!
Today’s nurses practice in a complex and dynamic healthcare environment that demands new roles, new knowledge and new leadership models. Baccalaureate prepared nurses have expanded employment options, greater professional knowledge, increased job satisfaction, more autonomy and higher earning potential.
Recognizing the complex challenges facing nurses today, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), and the American Nurses’ Association (ANA) recommend a baccalaureate degree for professional nursing practice.
Furthermore, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Future of Nursing Report calls for increasing the percentage of nurses holding a BSN degree or higher to 80% by 2020.
