Benefits of Getting Your BSN
Improve Patient Outcomes
The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has shown research indicating nurses holding a BSN have better patient outcomes, including lower mortality rates, lower failure to rescue rates, and higher proficiency in making good diagnoses.
Increased Career Opportunities
Nurses holding a BSN degree met the education requirements for 88% of nursing jobs posted, including specialized nursing, management, and leadership positions. Of the 187,000 jobs, registered nurses without their BSN were eligible for only 51%, according to Nurse Journal.

Midland University’s online RN to BSN program option helps students continue to grow professionally while fitting classes into their busy schedules. Students will complete clinical hours within their own community and gain real-life experiences. During this process, students will assess the health needs of an identified population and create an approach or educational plan to help that specific population. Each student selects their population with approval from the course faculty member. Students will work within their community agencies to implement the plan to meet the needs of that population.
