RN to BSN Completion Programs in Delaware

The BSN degree has become the standard in nursing practice as far as employers, the American Nurses Association (ANA) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) are concerned. The ANA and AACN have released statements regarding their view, recognizing "the BSN as the minimum educational requirement for professional nursing practice."

The RN to BSN program will build on the clinical education and experience that the Associate and Diploma educated nurse has completed. RN to BSN programs also offer registered nurses the opportunity to strengthen their communication, decision making, leadership, critical thinking and analytical skills in preparation for management and other leadership roles as well as in preparation for a master's level education where a baccalaureate degree is required for program admittance.

The ever increasing complexity of patient care has lead many employers to require or strongly prefer the BSN educated nurse. To maintain competitiveness for the higher paying and more competitive jobs higher education is a necessity in Delaware. Any desire to pursue a career in advanced practice, nurse educator or doctorate level education will require the baccalaureate level education.
