Choose a Nursing Degree
- A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is what you might pursue to get your license—or further your education if you already possess an associate’s degree.
- A Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) will typically be completed after an individual has earned a BSN. The MSN is a next step toward becoming an APRN. There are also bridge programs that can speed the trajectory from becoming an RN to earning an MSN degree for those who hold an associate’s degree.
Pursuing an undergraduate degree is often a starting point for aspiring nurses. It may help you understand if nursing is right for you and decide on whether to invest in a graduate education later on.
