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

For a registered nurse to earn their bachelor of science in nursing degree, they will need to find a degree program that caters specifically to licensed nurses. The state of Massachusetts has a healthy variety of colleges and universities that offer such programs.


Nurses who return to school to complete their BSN degree will give themselves a competitive advantage in the job market and increase their net value to employers. With a BSN degree you can negotiate higher salaries, better benefits packages, apply for jobs with greater levels of responsibility and engage in travel nursing opportunities. As the registered nursing profession evolves the BSN degree might eventually become more of a mandate rather than an option. To be prepared for future changes and employment trends it is wise to begin making the transition sooner rather than later.

Before you apply for an RN to BSN degree program you need to make sure that you are eligible, which means that you must have a current RN license, meet minimum GPA requirements for the program that you are applying to, and you should not have a clean background. Some universities may have additional requirements as well.

After graduating from an approved RN-BSN program and earning your diploma, you can even choose to continue your education with a Master’s degree of science in nursing (MSN), return to your current/previous employment position, or explore new opportunities that were not previously available to you.

When it comes to finding good nursing jobs in Massachusetts, the outlook is excellent. There over eighty hospitals in the state, and over ninety thousand employed registered nurses. The average nursing salary in Massachusetts is very strong, with experienced RNs earning up to $88,000 per year.
