5 Reasons for Nurses to Pursue a Bachelor’s Degree: Featuring Jill Jarufe, Healthcare Recruiter at Kaye/Bassman International
Dallas, Texas, 5/27/2011: If it’s been years since you received your hospital diploma or associate degree in nursing, you may be wondering if it’s worthwhile to go back to school for that four-year bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN). Consider these facts:
1. You’ve probably noticed “BSN required” more frequently in job postings for registered nurses. Experts agree, this is the future of nursing. In fact, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing states, “The BSN degree is essential for nurses seeking to move up the career ladder and provide a higher level of quality care.”
2. In an average healthcare facility, a nurse with a hospital diploma or associate degree will typically earn $5,000 to $10,000 less annually than someone with a bachelor’s degree, according to Jill Jarufe, a nursing-practice search consultant with Kaye/Bassman International in Dallas.
