An advanced nursing degree won’t help you field a phone order from a doctor who mumbles (seriously, can anybody understand that guy?) Or deal with barcodes on medications that just won’t scan. Come to think of it, it really won’t help you with any of the mundane aspects of your job that test your patience every single day.

But an advanced nursing degree will build the skills and resources you need to grow your career and take on a bigger role in the field. And put you on the path to help improve the health of the community around you.  

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is your primary pathway to advanced nursing. And a BSN from Regis University can put you on track to a richer, fuller experience in a short amount of time. Plus, you can balance work, life and school with our on-campus and hybrid courses that meet online too. 

If you haven’t made the decision to advance to your BSN, here are three reasons to get started today:

  1. The demand for advanced nurses is growing – fast. Professions like nurse anesthetists and nurse midwives are expected to grow by 31 percent, while health services managers are expected to grow by 23 percent by 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  2. Get credit for the work you already put in. If you completed an Associate's Degree in Nursing (ADN) program from a regionally accredited institution, you’re eligible for a lump sum transfer of at least 72 semester hours with our block transfer policy. Save time and money.
  3. Help improve the health of the community around you. Studies have shown a link between nurse education and improved patient outcomes. It’s why the Institute of Medicine recommended an increase in the proportion of nurses with a bachelor’s degree from 50 to 80 percent by 2020.

There’s no better time to take your nursing career up a degree. And if you’re looking to go even further in your career, Regis’ nursing career map has other high-level nursing paths you can pursue.
