What kind of jobs can you get with a BSN?

A BSN degree prepares you for more independent roles as a registered nurse. A BSN degree can lead to more supervisory roles and higher salaries, as well as:

  • Closer day-to-day work in care and team coordination
  • Quality assurance and improvement
  • Leadership
  • Community-based roles

How much does a BSN make per year?

Though salaries for RN to BSNs range by state, the Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the median average salary for registered nurses was $70,000, as of 2017. However, BSN educated nurses expand their role opportunities into leadership and supervisory positions, creating the potential for higher salaries than non-BSN prepared RNs.
