RN - BSN Completion Programs in Maryland

RN to BSN or ADN to BSN programs offer registered nurses with an associate's or diploma nursing education the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate of science in nursing. The BSN has become the most widely held nursing degree in Maryland according to the Advance for Nurses 2009 Salary Survey at 38.38%. As the BSN growth trend continues it has been the opinion of many in the field, that associate's programs could slowly disappear. To stay competitive for future nursing positions and advance your nursing career in the state of Maryland, an RN to BSN is essential. The AACN and ANA have also recently released a statement regarding their position on the BSN degree, stating that they recognize the BSN as the minimum education for professional nursing practice.

BSN programs build on the prior education an associate's or diploma educated nurse has gained. The RN to BSN is designed to strengthen the student's critical and analytical thinking and writing skills as well as build leadership skills, communication skills and basically develop a well rounded and highly skilled nurse. A nurse that is prepared to efficiently and effectively deliver patient care. The BSN is also the necessary step for any nurse who would like to pursue a master's level education to prepare for advanced practice, nurse educator, nurse administrator, public health and other roles that require higher education.
