The In-Demand BSN Degree

If you are questioning the legitimacy of earning a degree online, take heart. Not only are online degrees becoming more common, they are looked upon favorably by hiring managers. Employers recognize the fact that obtaining an online degree can only be accomplished by someone who can manage time, is motivated to work hard, and can set and achieve goals. A CNN report found that 83% of executives agree that an online degree is just as credible as one earned on-campus (Source: CNN report can be found at http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/worklife/03/29/cb.employers.online.education/index.html).

A 2011 survey conducted by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) found that employers have a strong hiring preference for new nurses trained at the baccalaureate level (Source: AACN survey can be found at http://www.aacn.nche.edu/leading_initiatives_news/news/2012/employment12). AACN continued their research in 2012, finding that 38.1% of hospitals require that all new-hire nurses have a bachelor's degree in nursing, up 9% from the year before. That number is only expected to rise as more nurses enter the workforce. AACN research also found that 77.4% of employers have a strong preference for nurses who have graduated from a BSN program.

Employers are specifically seeking out and hiring BSN-level nurses for good reason! A significant amount data shows that nurses with a BSN degree are linked to better patient outcomes: including lower mortality and failure-to-rescue rates. It is in the hospitals (and their patients') own best interest that they hire only nurses with BSN degrees or higher.
