Bachelor of Science in Nursing — (RN-BSN)
Earn your Bachelor of Nursing degree from Ottawa University and gain the skills and education you need to serve on the front lines of healthcare.
About Ottawa’s Bachelor of Nursing
Our RN-BSN program builds on real-world experiences in a 100 percent online learning setting to prepare registered nurses to take on new challenges in an ever-changing healthcare field. Many registered nurses who have graduated from Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) or diploma programs are returning back to school to earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in order to fulfill their personal and/or career goals, as well as to likely increase their overall earning potential.
There are additional outside influences that have impacted the reason many of these nurses are seeking a BSN completion educational program: national organizations such as the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the American Nurses Association (ANA) are advocating and supporting initiatives to increase the number of BSN-prepared nurses at the patient’s bedside. This is being heard by many health care-related facilities, including hospital employers.
Career Outlook for Nursing
Earning a BSN degree will not only assist you with opening the door to your future career opportunities, but may serve to satisfy your current employer’s organizational objectives, and ultimately the overall profession’s goals for obtaining a higher educated nursing work force. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for registered nurses with a bachelor’s degree was $70,000 annually in 2017. This area is projected to grow 15 percent by 2026.
