A bachelor’s of science in nursing (BSN) is obtained by individuals who complete, at a minimum of, four years of higher education once graduating from high school  BSN prepared individuals in the nursing profession are expected to succeed in additional courses in order to demonstrate higher levels of leadership, management and administrative roles as compared to RN’s that only complete the minimum two years of education. Possessing a BSN degree will increase the chances that an individual will land a more appealing job, possibly even at the entry-level without having to have much prior experience due to having the additional years of education under their belt.
