RN to BSN Degree vs. RN to BS in Nursing

If you hold an ADN and have been considering completing your bachelor’s degree, you have no doubt found many completion programs that offer an RN to BSN bridge. You have probably also noticed some offer an RN to BSN while others offer a RN to BS with a nursing major. In an already confusing world of available degrees, accreditations and abbreviations, what should you be looking for?

The key piece of information to consider is “bachelor of science.” While a BS in nursing and a BSN are different degrees, they are essentially interchangeable in the field. As long as you choose a regionally accredited program like NNU’s, either type of bachelor’s level degree will give you the advanced course work and leadership training that will increase your career and education opportunities.

NNU offers an RN to BS in nursing program for associate degree or diploma RN’s wishing to advance their education. The online format, small classes and accessible faculty make working a program around a nurse’s schedule doable. NNU’s accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) ensures you will receive a quality, versatile degree you can trust.
