BSN and Beyond

The intention of the information on this page is to provide information regarding furthering your nursing profession following initial licensure of your RN (Registered Nurse). Many nurses choose to further their career by obtaining their Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Master’s Degree or beyond. There are many fields to choose from, including a Family Nurse Practitioner for those who wish to prescribe medicine and a Master’s Degree in Education for those who wish to teach nursing!  Each of these fields are crucial to the sustainability and progress of the nursing profession and I wish you luck on your journey obtaining your BSN, and Beyond.
