You've already been to school to earn your associate's degree
and the hard work has paid off - you're a registered nurse
working in the field of health care, making a good income,
and doing what you love to do.
So why would you want to go back to school?

Two Words:  Career Advancement

If your immediate career goal is to become a shift leader,
a nurse director, a clinical manager,
or build the bridge to become an advanced practice nurse,
you need to turn your RN degree into a
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).
