An RN is a license, and 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. An Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN) can be obtained in about two years, while a BSN degree often requires three or four years of study. This is because a BSN degree equips nurses with the tools and experience necessary to advance their careers.

BSN program costs can be influenced by several factors, such as your goals and finances. At Provo College, there are various financial aid options available. Please contact a school representative for more information.

Registered Nursing (RN) Career

Registered Nurses (RNs) provide healthcare and medical support for their clients and patients. They educate their patients as well as the public about several health conditions. RNs have numerous tasks spanning both clinical and administrative responsibilities. They assess patient health conditions, record patient medical histories, administer medications or treatments, develop patient care plans, and collaborate with doctors, nurses, and administrative staff. In some cases, RNs may also operate medical equipment or help perform diagnostic tests and medical examinations.

Common employers of Registered Nurses include hospitals, ambulatory healthcare services, nursing care facilities, and schools. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of RNs is projected to grow 9 percent by 2030, which is about as fast as the average for all occupations.

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.
