What will a Bachelor of Science in Nursing do for me?

ASNAs a BSN-prepared nurse, you will be prepared to coordinate recruiting and orienting of new hires, oversee unit nursing staff, manage and coordinate schedules, improve the ef ciency and quality of care provided to patients and function more readily in roles both at the bedside and in other independent settings. In addition, graduates are prepared to assume roles involving leadership, education, research, and community health. By enrolling in the Mercy College of Health Sciences RN to BSN online program, you will study alongside other licensed nurses who are also striving to advance their nursing careers.

National research supports becoming a BSN graduate:
  • As a nurse’s education increases, patient mortality decreases.
  • BSN graduates are twice as likely to utilize employer-provided tuition assistance to expand their education.
  • BSN-prepared nurses reported higher job satisfaction and lower job stress.
  • The Institute of Medicine (IOM) in a 2010 report on the future of nursing declared a national goal of achieving an 80% BSN-prepared nursing workforce to meet the challenges of healthcare in the 21st Century.
