RN to BSN Program Designed for Working Nurses

Working full time while managing personal and family responsibilities can be challenging. Pursuing another degree amid all this can seem overwhelming at first. However, an online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program can fit seamlessly into any busy schedule. An online program can save prospective students time and money while providing the flexibility they desire.

Nurses may work in many settings at various times. Many choose to work when it is convenient for them — nights, weekends, etc. When giving so much to others each and every day, maintaining a positive work-life balance is crucial.

Access to Jobs

Earning a BSN degree can provide access to a greater number of job opportunities within the field of healthcare. Being able to complete a bachelor’s degree online can provide students with more time for themselves, their families and full-time work. This is possible through the flexible nature of an online program, through self-scheduling, self-discipline and zero commute.

Online bridge programs, such as the RN to BSN program at La Salle University, are designed with busy working professionals in mind.

For nursing alumna Georgian Green, who graduated from the La Salle online RN to BSN program in May 2016, college wasn’t in the picture when she was growing up in Spanish Town, Jamaica. Moving to Philadelphia with her family seven years ago changed all that because it opened the door to opportunities made possible by education. Green believes earning the BSN helped her progress with her career. She said, “Today I still use everything I learned [in the RN to BSN program]. I’m thinking of going back for my master’s.”

Flexible Option for Working Nurses

With affordable tuition and potential course completion in as few as 10 months, La Salle’s online RN to BSN program provides an accelerated option. The program is convenient and accessible for working nurses who can choose from six start dates to begin classes at a time that works for them.

Students enrolled in the online RN to BSN program at La Salle are preparing for the future of their nursing careers.

Per the La Salle website, “The program emphasizes quality and safety in patient care while also instilling lifelong learning as a hallmark of professional nurses, while serving as a foundation for graduate study. Students will learn to implement culturally appropriate strategies for health promotion, risk reduction, and disease prevention, and use clinical judgment and decision-making skills when assessing and evaluating the health status of individuals and families.”

Is an online RN to BSN bridge program right for you? Weigh your options and do your research. With flexible start dates, a low tuition cost and flexibility for working students, this type of program can lead a busy nurse toward a long, successful career.
