RN to BSN Degree Completion in West Virginia (WV)

Nurses who decide to complete their BSN degree in West Virginia can expect to earn higher salaries, receive preference over less educated RNs for nursing job openings and enjoy a wider variety of career options. Holding a BSN degree places you amongst the upper 33rd percentile of registered nurses in terms of educational achievement and degree qualifications. As with many careers, more education leads to more opportunities and more money!

West Virginia’s nursing workforce is aging and many current nurses will soon be retiring. Employers are seeking to replace current nurses with the most qualified and highly educated RNs available in the candidate pool. To ensure that you rank highly amongst your competition you want to have a BSN degree. Once you land an initial nursing position you might want to specialize in one particular field of nursing such as geriatrics, radiology, ambulatory care, pediatrics or OB/GYN, and having your BSN will help you reach this goal. After working as a nurse for several years you might want to negotiate a higher salary or explore different career options. With a BSN degree you will have the necessary ammunition to ask for a pay raise or put your resume out in different professional fields. Nurses who became licensed and registered through a diploma or certificate program will not enjoy such benefits and will be more restricted in their career choices.

The amount of time it takes to complete a BSN degree will depend on your previous level of education and amount of course work or credits completed in college-level courses. You can contact an admissions adviser to review your educational background and find out exactly how long it will take you to complete your degree before making the decision to enroll.
