New Jersey BSN Programs - Finding the Right One for You

For many, the choice to become a professional nurse is an easy one to make. The opportunity to help people and challenge themselves combines with great pay and numerous career opportunities and creates an amazingly attractive profession. If you're considering a career as a nurse, you may already know that deciding how to enter the field can be more complicated. Earning a BSN is widely considered to be the preferred way to become a nurse, and the Institute of Medicine has recommended that the ratio of nurses with Bachelor's Degrees increases to eighty percent over the next few years. But choosing among the different BSN programs in New Jersey can seem difficult.

There are a few things you can consider when selecting amongst the BSN programs in New Jersey. The first thing to look at is exactly what you want from a program and which ones provide it. In general, a BSN program involves four years of education. The first year or two usually focus on general education and basic nursing classes. Thereafter, your training will become more hands on and involve lab time, class work, and even possibly clinical duty designed to allow you to earn hands on training working alongside medical professionals. You can often specialize in certain areas as well. Be sure that what you want to gain from a course is covered before you sign up for it.

It's easy to overlook qualifications when looking through BSN programs in New Jersey. Be sure that you actually qualify to enroll in the course. Prerequisites usually include biology, chemistry, and psychology credits but may vary according to the school you select. Also find out how much traveling you'll be doing since some programs involve classes on multiple campus or work with different medical institutions for clinical time. You may even be able to take a few of your courses online. And don't forget to look into financial aid to help you pay for tuition, textbooks, and other program related costs.

A vital aspect of choosing a BSN program is the college's credentials. You'll want to learn from the most highly respected university possible, since potential employers hold different colleges in higher regard than others. A small bit of research online will usually reveal all that you need to know about a school's standing and credentials. With these factors considered, you should be able to make an informed decision about which one of the BSN programs in New Jersey is right for you. Earning a BSN is a great way to begin building a career that will continue to reward you throughout the years.
