Vermont Tech’s online Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (BSN) program was ranked #5 out of 500 in the nation for Best Online RN to BSN Programs by RegisteredNursing.org, an organization of registered nurses based in Carlsbad, CA.
RegisteredNursing.org recognized that Vermont Tech’s program features online courses with local capstone experiences, a 100% job placement rate, and the opportunity for reduced tuition rates.
“From disease prevention to health and wellness promotion, Vermont Tech’s interdisciplinary BSN program prepares nurses to take charge of their careers and take care of their patients,” said Lisa Fox, DNP, MS/Ed, BS, RN, CNE, associate dean of nursing at the School of Nursing and Health Professions.
This accolade comes at a perfect time—the National League for Nursing has declared 2022 the Year of the Nurse Educator in recognition of the essential role of nursing education during the pandemic, and in celebration of its historic and continuing inspiration to nurses everywhere.
Why RN to BSN?
For decades, leaders in the field of nursing have encouraged associate’s and diploma level nurses to pursue a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. Research has proven that nurses with this degree experience improved job satisfaction, improved patient outcomes, and fewer clinical errors.
Within the last few years, the push to hire bachelor’s educated registered nurses has gained momentum. It seems likely that in the future, a bachelor’s degree will be the minimum education requirement for registered nurses.
Online learning is more important now than ever before. Vermont Tech’s nursing program is leading the way and helping to secure the future of nursing.
As hospitals and healthcare systems make the push to hire more BSN-educated nurses, many RNs are considering a return to school to advance their education. Fortunately, online RN to BSN programs make this process quicker and easier than ever, and many RNs can continue working while they complete these programs.
