Why Pursue your BSN? 

Nurses are an integral part of the healthcare field, providing patients with critical care and assisting doctors and physicians in all types of medical procedures. As a Registered Nurse (RN), you may find work in many settings, including in schools, doctors’ offices, and medical clinics, but as a BSN, you will have expanded opportunities for employment.

Obtaining your BSN will allow you to achieve a higher skill level beyond basic nursing skills, and you will be qualified for opportunities to work in additional practice types, which require a Bachelor’s degree. These positions may be in hospitals, medical offices, specialty clinics, residential facilities, health care agencies, education, and more.

Nurses are in high demand across the United States, and in Nevada the need is higher than the average (Careeronestop.org, 2021). Within the demand for nurses, the need for BSNs is especially high. According to the December 2020 Brief of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), there is an increased preference by employers to hire BSN program graduates (AACN, 2021).
