Career Benefits of a BSN Degree


How can a BSN take your nursing career to the next level? Let’s take a look at the career benefits of earning a BSN. Our RN-to-BSN program is offered online, so you can begin working toward your degree as soon as possible.

The BSN program at HCI is 100% online. You can take 9 credit hours a semester and qualify as a full-time student. This differs from other schools that set full-time status at 12 credit hours a semester. With these maximized course loads, students can focus on their studies and master the topics while still managing their day-to-day lives.

Open more employment opportunities

More and more hospitals are requiring that their RNs have at minimum a BSN degree. With a BSN, you can apply to more positions than you can with an ASN or nursing diploma.

Go beyond basic clinical care

RNs who hold only an ASN or a diploma are limited on the level of care that they can provide patients. A BSN means that you can go beyond basic clinical care to offer advanced patient care.

Qualify for more positions

Some positions require a minimum BSN. Nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists all must have a BSN. By completing the RN-to-BSN program at HCI, you will qualify for more positions within the nursing field.

Foundation for further education

Perhaps you eventually want to earn your Master of Science in Nursing. You will need to have already earned a BSN before going further in your education. The BSN could be a step towards even further education.

Professional advancement

RNs with a BSN not only have more opportunities for nursing jobs but can move into leadership positions. The knowledge and skills that you gain from earning a BSN goes a long way toward professional advancement as a nurse.
