Mercy College now offers two (2) paths to becoming a registered nurse.
Deciding which academic program path is right for you depends on your long-term nursing career goals. Mercy College of Health Sciences offers an Associate of Science in Nursing degree (ASN) and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN). Both are sound and purposeful ways toward a career in health care, but the curriculum delivery and career choices differ.
Developing good study habits will pay in your career.
“Effective study habits create a more efficient academic or work environment,” says Kris Owens, Manager of Student Success. “Planning in advance, setting priorities, and organizing your time are necessary skills for success.”
If you have ever considered going back to school for your BSN, now is the time! Mercy College's 100% online RN to BSN program has assisted hundreds of returning RN's reach this attainable goal. This program is open to current registered nurses who meet admissions requirements.
Like many registered nurses, upon completing nursing school and passing the NCLEX, you were ready to get to work and wanted to start earning money.
You can have PRIDE in knowing you will be joining thousands of registered nurses nationwide who will be working towards achieving their BSN to reach the recommendation outlined by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) that the number of nurses in the nation with bachelor degrees increase to 80% by 2020.
As an EXPERIENCED NURSE who has always been patient-centered and constantly looking for improved ways to benefit the outcome of your patient, you realize it's time to enhance your overall nursing delivery approach to be more comprehensive, and to do this you could use formal instruction and support that is offered through the RN to BSN program at Mercy College.
