Nurses who have their BSN degree enjoy a wider variety of career opportunities within the nursing field. Registered nurses with their BSN degree also have an advantage when competing for RN job openings with other candidates who earned their RN through an Associate’s degree program or diploma program. Many healthcare employers in Alabama give preference to RN applicants with a Bachelor’s level education in the nursing field. The BSN background indicates to employers that the individual has a stronger academic knowledge base in the science of nursing.

RN to BSN bridge programs are designed specifically for currently licensed registered nurses to build upon their education to reach the Bachelor’s degree level. Nurses who entered the profession through a diploma or certificate program will start with fewer credits and it will take longer to complete their BSN degree. Nurses who hold an Associate’s degree will have fewer courses to take in order to obtain their BSN degree because they will receive credit for previous education units completed.
