All of my professors want us to take away relevant information that applies to the workplace, and they really deliver. At my job, I've noticed how I'll be working on an issue and realize I just studied that topic in class. It's great to see how the theory from our textbooks applies to real-world situations.

Major: Management



Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science Degree

In a period when the health care industry is focused on managed care, community health, and health promotion/disease prevention, the role of nurses takes center stage. Nurses today are expected to perform complex procedures, rely heavily on their own analytical abilities, and work more independently than ever before.

The Job Market

Career opportunities abound in the nursing profession; there is a critical shortage of nurses equipped to assume new roles requiring leadership and management skills and solid foundations in nursing practice. Opportunities exist in the traditional areas of acute care hospitals, long term care facilities, and rehabilitation centers, but there are also many opportunities in community health, educational, and business settings.

Why Earn Your BS in Nursing? Why Curry?

As a Registered Nurse, there is no better way to prepare for the growing demands of the dynamic workplace than to further your education. Learning has no age limit. Here are some of the reasons given by RNs regarding their decision to enter Curry's RN-BS Nursing Program:

  • Provides career advancement and broaden career options in the nursing field
  • Enhances personal and professional growth
  • Improves critical-thinking skills
  • Increases understanding of health care bureaucracy and policies
  • Augments ability to act as a change agent and patient advocate
  • Enables the pursuit of future graduate education

RN to Baccalaureate (BSN, BS or Bachelor of Science in Nursing) programs provide an efficient bridge for diploma and ADN-prepared nurses who wish to develop stronger clinical reasoning and analytical skills to advance their careers. RN-to-BS programs build on initial nursing preparation with course work to enhance professional development, prepare for a broader scope of practice, and provide a better understanding of the cultural, political, economic, and social issues that affect patients and influence care delivery. While a BS in nursing and a BSN are different degrees, they are essentially interchangeable in the field of Nursing.
