Accelerate Your Career: Online RN to MSN Programs

by South University
September 29, 2011

Are you a RN that is seeking career advancement? Is your desire for advancement thwarted by the lack of an appropriate degree? Does the task of earning both your BSN and MSN seem too much? Then you are the type of nurse that accelerated online RN to BSN programs have been developed for.

In this accelerated program, you can earn both your BSN and MSN at the same time. As a current RN professional, you can receive up to 45 credit hours for your experience. In addition, you may be able to transfer any existing college credits you have, giving you a head start on your studies. From there, you’ll begin working on studies for your BSN and MSN.

The BSN part of the program focuses on nursing practices, advanced healthcare techniques and professionalism in delivering healthcare. Adding the MSN classes to the program broadens your horizons with a focus on being a Nurse Educator, training and mentoring other nurses in applying the latest techniques in both the classroom and the clinic.

As an MSN, you will be trained and prepared for advancement into management positions, such as nursing supervisor, managing a home health service or training other nurses. This is a program for those who want to go faster, jump higher, and reach farther than their peers. Those who want a new challenge for their professional life can find it in online RN to BSN programs. As a graduate, you won’t be just another RN; your master’s degree will open the door to elevate you to a higher position.

The healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing industries in our country today. Taking the step now, to prepare yourself for advancement, is an investment in your future. Those who make the extra effort to study today are the ones who will become the nursing leaders of tomorrow.

By studying in the online RN to BSN program, you are able to study on your own schedule, from the comfort of your own home, fitting your studies into your work and family needs. You won’t have to put your life on hold while you study; but you will still be able to learn the skills and receive the certification you need to go on to the next step in your professional life.
