The healthcare landscape is rapidly evolving, and that includes the scope of responsibilities and skills necessary for nurses.

  • Studies show that higher nursing education makes a big difference in improved patient outcomes.
  • Many states across the U.S. are considering, and New York has passed legislation requiring nurses to obtain a BSN within 10 years of completing their associate degree.
  • In order to qualify for American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Recognition®, hospitals must provide proof of plans to increase their BSN workforce to 80% by 2020.
“BSN nurses are prized by employers for their critical thinking, leadership, case management, and health promotion skills, and for their ability to practice across a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings.”
