Complete your Bachelor's degree in Nursing and advance your career

Connecticut features a nice selection of RN to BSN nursing programs to choose from. These types of program are strictly limited to current registered nurses and not open to students seeking a general BSN degree program. The curriculum is intended to build upon the RNs current knowledge and assumes that students already have a working understanding of basic nursing practices.

Since the RN-BSN program is geared towards currently employed registered nurses it often takes into account the various scheduling conflicts that might arise for full-time workers attending school simultaneously. That is why many Connecticut RN to BSN programs offer flexible class schedules so that students can attend school wither part-time, full-time, online or in an accelerated format.

Seasoned nurses who have been employed as an RN for many years might not see the point in spending additional time and resources going back to school for a career that they are already participating in. The added value of a BSN degree must be carefully evaluated according to each individual’s specific circumstances. For many RNs, having a BSN degree will pay off over the course of a long career in the nursing profession. The BSN recipient will benefit from having strong qualifications amongst registered nurses and having a broad educational background that can be utilized outside the field of nursing.
