Expected Nursing Employment Opportunities
The nursing profession is one that is in high demand, and this is expected to continue in the future. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment of Nurses is expected to grow by 26 percent between 2010 and 2020. With the technological advances and continued responsibility placed on nurses, having a BSN affords the nursing professional the academic foundation to address such fast paced changes. With focus shifting to prevention, early intervention and home care, nursing professionals are increasingly offering their services outside of the hospital settings. The BSN degree prepares nurses for graduate study, including nurse practitioners, nurse educators and Doctor of Nursing Practice. Increasingly, hospitals who have obtained or are seeking magnet status are also requiring nurses whom they employ hold a BSN degree.
