A Strong Call to Action: RN to BSN Programs in Oregon

Why are professional nurses choosing to return to school for their baccalaureate degrees? In some cases, it’s to make themselves more marketable. They may be eying positions that say that a BSN is preferred or that a candidate must be willing to obtain one within a specified time after hiring. The BSN is not replacing the ADN. There is continued need for associate’s level nurses, but the need for baccalaureate level nurses is higher. Baccalaureate level nurses are prepared for more roles within our ever evolving and ever more complex health system. From the American Nurses Association to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, healthcare organizations are issuing strong calls to action. They are encouraging nurses to pursue further education. They are also encouraging employers and government systems alike to put systems in place to make it easier for them to do so.
