Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a BSN Degree?
Nurses with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree typically receive higher salaries, coveted leadership roles, and a wider variety of jobs. A 2016 study from Nurse Journal found that, of 187,000 nursing jobs posted over a 90-day period, BSN holders were eligible for 88% of those jobs, while RNs with associate’s degrees were only eligible for 51% of them.
What is the difference between an RN and BSN?
An RN is a license, while a BSN is a degree. To become a licensed RN, the first step is to enroll in a pre-licensure nursing program. Some programs lead to an associate degree and some to a BSN degree. While an ADN degree takes about two years of study, a BSN degree usually requires three or four years. A BSN degree involves a higher level of study, allowing RNs to advance their careers and earn a variety of benefits.
What is the cost of the BSN program?
Tuition costs for a BSN degree can vary depending on your individual situation (i.e. location, finances, etc.) There are a number of financial aid options available to students at Eagle Gate. Reach out to a school representative for more information.

The Hybrid Online BSN Schedule
Our BSN program is delivered in a hybrid online format. Some of our nursing classes will be in person while others can be completed online, on an asynchronous learning schedule. Asynchronous classes offer you the flexibility to study at your own pace. Although it may be difficult to maintain a full-time job throughout the entire program, we tailored our schedules to support the increasingly busy lives of many of our students.
BSN Program – Year 1
The first three semesters of the BSN program are completely online via asynchronous learning. Busy parents and working adults can complete all these classes virtually.
BSN Program – Year 2
In year two, the BSN courses are delivered online as well as in-person. Students are required to be on-site three days a week for classes and once a week for clinical training.
BSN Program – Year 3
The final three semesters of the BSN program include some online coursework but does require more on-campus attendance. Although it varies by semester, students may have to be on campus up to five days a week (up to 3 days of classes and 2 days of clinicals).
