Missouri BSN Programs - A Number of Benefits

By the year 2020, the country is expected to need 2.8 million professional nurses in order to adequately serve the nation's health care needs. Unfortunately, a shortage is expected. Becoming a professional nurse will allow you to enjoy job security that few other occupations can offer. And salaries for nursing professionals are well above the national average. Most agree that the best entry point for those wishing to become professional nurses is earning a BSN. BSN programs in Missouri not only supply you with the skills that you will need on a daily basis as a nurse, but with expertise needed to fill many different job positions.

While a two year nursing program focuses only on the basic nursing techniques, four year long BSN programs in Missouri go much further. You'll learn medical theory that can be applied to your work every day, from providing support to patients and their families to helping assess a patient's overall well being based on a number of factors. The Institute of Medicine has recently suggested increasing the percentage of nurses with a bachelor's degree to eighty percent, which highlights the importance of these degrees. Employers often prefer to hire applicants with a BSN, and your pay is likely to be more than it would be with a lesser degree.

There are many nursing positions that require a bachelor's degree. Midwifes, nursing anesthetists, and many administrative nursing jobs are impossible to obtain without a BSN, and even becoming a head nurse will be extremely difficult without one. Four year BSN programs in Missouri go beyond basic techniques like drawing blood filling out charts, teaching you a number of leadership skills that ensure you'll be a serious contender when promotion opportunities arise at your job. Once you graduate, you will be qualified to take the nursing exam and gain your license to work as a professional nurse in a variety of medical settings.

Students enrolled in BSN programs in Missouri will learn psychology, nutrition, humanities, and more. Class time is combined with lab work and often with clinical simulations or actual clinical duties in a real medical setting under supervision. Nursing professionals who want to further their career can enroll in two year long RN to BSN programs that allow them to continue working while they earn their BSN. A bachelor's degree is a valuable item that provides a number of benefits to your career as a nurse.
