As healthcare has become increasingly complex, the demand for highly skilled and highly educated nurses in America has increased. Although there are multiple paths to a nursing career, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is gaining more traction as the minimum preparation for the beginning professional nursing practice. Both the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the National Advisory Council on Nurse Education and Practice (NACNEP) both recognize the BSN degree as the minimal educational requirement for entry into practice. The Institute of Medicine has also recommended that 80% or more of practicing nurses have a baccalaureate degree in nursing by the year 2020. If you are a registered nurse, earning your BSN can advance your nursing career and prepare you to become a leader in the field.
