RN to BSN Completion Programs in Rhode Island

The RN to BSN completion programs offered in Rhode Island and listed below accept associate's degree nursing and diploma in nursing educated registered nurses with current, unencumbered registered nursing licenses. The RN to BSN program is designed to enhance professional nursing opportunities as well as nursing skills. Students are prepared to assume positions with greater responsibilities and in many cases greater salaries. Graduates are also eligible to pursue master's nursing programs or BS to DNP programs that, upon graduation, offer even more career and earnings opportunities.

The health care industry in Rhode Island employs over 70,000 people according to the Hospital Association of Rhode Island. Of these positions, 91% require a college education and pay a median hourly rate of $24.001. The mean hourly salary for a staff nurse, according to the Advance for Nurses 2009 Salary Survey, was $33.00. Earning a BSN in nursing does not necessarily have an immediate impact on earnings, however, what it does do is provide graduates with the communication skills, analytical and critical thinking skills and leadership skills needed to move into more demanding leadership positions. In general, positions with greater responsibilities will have higher salaries.
