  • be an active registered nurse (passed the NCLEX) and
  • practice in a nursing setting (outpatient clinic, research facility, hospital)
RN to BSN program coursework usually focuses on the following:
  • Leadership
  • Administrative skills
  • Critical thinking

Sometimes, hospitals or other health care settings may reimburse some tuition costs for completing an RN to BSN program. RN to BSN programs are designed to train you for nursing supervisor roles and charge nursing in a hospital; however, RN to BSN courses may focus on clinical time outside the hospital. This means RNs who hold a BSN may be competitive candidates for a variety of nursing careers both in and out of the hospital.
