A Resource for New and Advancing RNs

As multiple studies reveal a direct relationship between the proportion of BSN-educated RNs on staff and improved patient outcomes – including lower rates of infection, readmittance and mortality – healthcare providers are making every effort to increase the number of BSNs they employ. Healthcare providers now show a strong preference for BSN-educated RN job candidates during the hiring process, while some hospital systems now require a BSN as the minimum qualification.

In an even more proactive approach to increasing the proportion of BSN-educated RNs on staff, hospital systems now offer tuition reimbursement, scheduling accommodations and other incentives to encourage their RNs to return to school to complete RN-to-BSN bridge programs.

BSNedu.org was created to satisfy the growing demand for information on both prelicensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs and post-licensure RN-to-BSN bridge programs.

Our Mission

Our mission here at BSNedu.org is simple: We strives to serve as a free, unbiased, comprehensive resource for anybody interested in earning a BSN, either as a path to initial RN licensure or as a post-licensure degree.

As a comprehensive resource for new nursing students and existing RNs considering their education options, BSNedu.org is here to help. We encourage visitors to use this resource freely and share it among their peers.

Here at BSNedu.org we provide:

  • State-by-state guides on scholarships and education incentives available through local employers and state agencies working to make a bachelor’s-level education more accessible to all nurses
  • Information on entrance requirements and credit transfer allowances for pre-licensure and post-licensure students, as well as those from other backgrounds considering a career change to registered nursing
  • Degree guides that describe the various entry-points for nurses and aspiring nurses (pre-licensure BSN, RN-BSN, LPN/LVN-BSN, and accelerated programs for professionals with bachelor’s degrees in areas other than nursing)
  • Career guides that provide a clear explanation of the career paths, specializations and related specialty certification available to BSNs
  • State by state salary guides that provide information on what BSN-educated RNs earn as compared to their ADN/diploma-prepared peers (from surveys conducted by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and ADVANCE)
  • Blogs on current issues concerning BSN programs and the nursing profession in general
