Abstract
If you're an RN with an associate's degree in nursing (ADN) or a diploma, are you hesitant to pursue a bachelor's of science in nursing (BSN) degree? Have you been asked if or when you plan to get your BSN? If your answer to either question is yes, this article is for you! It outlines the key reasons why nurses need a BSN and discusses how seasoned nurses can overcome common barriers to returning to school for a higher degree. Part 2 of this article will present the nuts and bolts of choosing an RN-to-BSN nursing program, whether a traditional, online, or combination program.
