Missouri RN to BSN Programs

The ever changing nature of the health care industry has greatly expanded the role of registered nurses, not only in Missouri, but across the country. Nursing has become a much more complex career and though patient care remains the top priority, nurses today are being called upon to perform other tasks outside of the traditional hospital or physician office settings.

Advances in health care coupled with an aging population and the evolution of the health care system, have created the need for more nurses in positions of leadership, public health, case management, community health, home health, forensics, as well as other area. There is one catch, however. Regardless of experience, many of these positions require their nurses to have at least a baccalaureate degree in nursing.

As a result, many colleges and universities have created RN to BSN programs for licensed registered nurses that already have an associate's in nursing or nursing diploma. The curriculum of many of these programs is centered around further development of leadership skills, communication and interpersonal skills, and the clinical and ethical knowledge of registered nurses. RN to BSN programs are offered online in Missouri as well as at a number of campus locations. Online RN to BSN degree programs have become increasingly popular as they generally require little or no classroom attendance and are flexible in nature, thereby allowing you time for your current job and other obligations.

An obvious additional benefit to getting your BSN is that higher education generally leads to a higher salary. According to Indeed.com, nurses in Missouri with a bachelors degree earn an average of $68,000 per year. Salary may vary greatly depending upon location, experience, and position.
