An increasingly complex health care system requires better educated nurses. Getting your Bachelor of Science in Nursing from SPC gives you a solid foundation for advancing your career and improving your skills. Many employers now require nurses be adept in critical thinking, quality improvement, systems thinking and team leadership. If you are an R.N., our program delivers that and more in a flexible, online format.
See the College of Nursing mission statement, and goals and student outcomes for the BSN degree program.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that by 2020, 80% of nurses
should have a bachelor’s degree to meet the expanding health care needs
of Americans. Job prospects are better for registered nurses with a
bachelor’s degree. Overall, employment of registered nurses is expected
to grow much faster than average.
