RN to BSN Completion Programs in the District of Columbia

Registered nurses in Washington DC with an associate's degree or diploma education in nursing will find a variety of online and campus based options for earning their BSN. RN to BSN programs are offered online as well as through some nursing school campus locations in the District of Columbia. RN to BSN degree programs can be completed in as little as 12 months with transfer of prior nursing credits that can eliminate duplication of courses.

A baccalaureate in nursing or BSN education prepares registered nurses for a wide array of career paths and opportunities including leadership positions with greater responsibilities as well as master's in nursing opportunities that can create even more opportunities. It's been proven time and again that higher education results in positions with greater responsibility and with greater responsibility often comes greater earning potential.

The percentage of practicing nurses with an associate's or diploma is rapidly declining nationally, but there are still around 46% of working nurses that hold an associate's degree, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. According to the 2009 Salary Survey conducted by Advance for Nurses, Washington DC is one of the few areas that has significantly more baccalaureate educated nurses (41.38%) compared to associate's degree educated nurses (13.79%). Nursing employment is projected to grow by 9% through 2016, according to the District of Columbia, Department of Employment Service. Which is all the more reason to begin an RN to BSN program as soon as possible to maintain a competitive edge for the most coveted nursing positions in Washington DC.
