The CNA to BSN Journey
The CNA to Nursing Pathway helps Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) transition into Registered Nurses (RNs). As a CNA, you’ve already gained critical experience needed to become a registered nurse. This puts you in an ideal position to continue your training and further your career.
Now you have the opportunity to earn your degree while still working as a CNA. To help you take the next step, all CNAs are eligible for a $900 scholarship for our BSN program.
Here’s a look at how taking the time to earn your BSN degree will pay off in the long run:
BSN-trained nurses typically receive higher salaries, management positions, and job opportunities. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has found that 86.3% of employers now require or strongly prefer nurses with a bachelor’s degree. Take a look at how earning your BSN can benefit your career path and job outlook below:
