RN to BSN Completion Programs in Wyoming

The AACN and ANA have made mention that they recognize the BSN as the minimum education requirement for professional nursing. Though, ask many nurses in the Wyoming health care system and you will hear way different. Associate's and diploma educated nurses receive intense clinical training in the hospital environment as well in long-term care, nursing homes and related health care system facilities. In many cases an associate's or diploma educated nurse working in one of these settings would rule a newbie BSN graduate. However, that's not what this is all about.

RN to BSN programs take into account a registered nurse's prior education and often will transfer credits toward the BSN through articulation models or similar means. RN to BSN programs build on the prior education and clinical experience, strengthening areas that are not a focus of associate's or diploma nursing education programs. Areas such as communication, leadership skills, analytical writing and thinking, clinical reasoning, nursing theory, ethics, managed health care and other fields that help prepare a more well-rounded nurse upon graduation.

The baccalaureate of science in nursing (BSN) has become an critical step for nurses who want to advance their career or pursue master's level education to become an advanced practice nurse, nurse educator, nurse executive and other positions requiring higher education. With these positions often come greater responsibilities, new found satisfaction with their nursing career and many times better salaries or hourly wages.
