Bachelor of Science in Nursing


Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is an American four year academic degree in the science and principles of nursing, granted by a tertiary education university or similarly accredited school. Though one is eligible to sit for the a licensing examination to become a registered nurse after graduating from either a two year program with an Associate's Degree (ADN) or from a four-year program with an Bachelor's Degree (BSN), the BSN prepares nurses for a professional role away from the bedside with coursework in nursing science, research, leadership, and nursing informatics.
