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

Registered Nurses who are looking to enhance their careers in Hawaii have the ability to build on their associate degree or nursing diploma by participating in programs specially designed to earn them a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The programs are designed for adult learners. Programs offer either classroom or online instruction. The online options allow a registered nurse to obtain their BSN in as little as three semesters but in practice most nurses earn their BSN in 12 to 18 months.


Why earn a BSN? Most registered nurses claim sheer personal satisfaction as the primary benefit. However, the degree program gives the knowledge and critical leadership skills for an RN to advance in the world of medicine, business, and personal achievement. The salary benefits for obtaining a BSN are long-term and factor in during career advancement. While it’s true that an RN with an ADN and an RN with a BSN will both earn the same salary in the same position especially at the entry-level, when advancing to higher positions the BSN will command a higher salary. It should also be considered that many nursing job postings state “BSN preferred” and thus having this degree will keep your employment options broad.

A registered nurse with a BSN degree is prepared for a wider variety of job positions. Due to the holistic academic approach, the BSN nurse is the only basic nursing graduate qualified to practice in all aspects of health care including mental health. There is a legitimate reason why many nursing employers strongly prefer to hire nurses with their BSN degree and you will hold a clear advantage being part of this group.

Also included in the BSN program is community health nursing. This is a practice which was popular in the 1800s in various manners from village shaman to midwives. Community health care is only taught in the BSN programs. As the field of medicine advances and the requirements grow more complex, these abilities are essential for today’s professional nurse who must be a skilled provider to remain competitive. Nurses must be ready to make life and death decisions at a moment’s notice and yet have the tactful skills to teach patients how to comply with treatment and adopt a healthy lifestyle. There is no comparison to today’s modern nurse with a BSN.
