RN to BSN Online Programs Offered in Minnesota

Online RN to BSN completion programs have become a trend for registered nurses in Minnesota looking for ways to maintain a work, life and education balance. Many of the nursing schools in Minnesota as well as nationally have developed online RN to BSN programs that offer the exact same content as campus based programs and have the same faculty teaching the courses.

With the severe shortage of nurses affecting the Minnesota health care system and the increasingly complex state of health care, the need for baccalaureate educated nurses has never been greater. The baccalaureate degree has become a benchmark for nurses in many Minnesota hospitals. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook is extremely positive for bachelor's educated nurses. Salaries in most cases are significantly more with a BSN.
