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

Competition for registered nursing positions in the state of New York can be fierce at times. In order to stand out from the crowd you want to make your resume as impressive as possible. One of the first things that employers will consider is an applicant’s educational background and nursing course work previously completed.

Having a BSN degree sets the individual apart from all other RN candidates who hold lesser degrees. This is a clear indication to employers that the BSN recipient has a more extensive nursing education. New York city is a particularly competitive job market and nurses with their BSN will have a much easier time securing employment in the Big Apple.

For New York nurses looking to advance their careers within the nursing field or apply to other RN job openings, the BSN degree can provide a significant advantage. Most jobs prefer or require registered nurses to have their Bachelor’s degree to be considered for the position. Since nurses who are currently employed have limited time and resources to spend on pursuing further education there are many part-time and online RN to BSN programs offered throughout New York.
