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.

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.

Registered Nursing Career

Registered Nurses (RNs) provide hands-on care in several medical settings, including nursing homes, long-term care facilities, hospitals, and clinics. They also educate their patients and the general public about various health conditions, risk factors, and tips for leading a healthier life. Their responsibilities often include assessing patient symptoms and conditions, recording medical histories, administering treatments, and setting up patient care plans alongside doctors and other nurses. In addition, some RNs may operate medical equipment or help perform diagnostic tests.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of RNs is projected to grow 9% by 2030. Becoming a Registered Nurse can also lead to a steady source of income. The BLS reports that the average salary of an RN is about $75,000. Registered Nurses who earn salaries in the top 10 percent can earn as much as $116,000.
