Press release from: Independence University

Salt Lake City, UT, Feb 11, 2010 – Independence University has announced a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing Degree with an eye on providing Registered Nurses the skills and knowledge to move to the next level in their profession.

With 2.6 millions jobs in 2008, Registered Nurses or RNs formed the largest chunk of healthcare professionals. The profession is expected to add another 581,500 new jobs over the next few years, which means that Registered Nurses will continue to enjoy excellent employment opportunities.

While many nurses enter the profession after completing a diploma program in a hospital or an associate degree offered through a university or community college, advancement opportunities are limited for these licensed nurses. That is why many RNs with aspirations to move up to supervisory roles return to school for a BSN program.

According to the American Nurses Association, 34.2% Registered Nurses held a bachelor’s degree, while only 17.5% of the entire RN workforce held a diploma. It is evident that more and more RNs are looking at earning a college degree to advance their career to the next level.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree at Independence University is designed especially to cater to the career advancement aspirations of RNs. Graduates not only learn advanced nursing concepts as part of this online BSN program, but also get an understanding of the non-clinical and administrative aspects of healthcare industry. Besides, Registered Nurses who complete this program acquire leadership and communication skills required for administrative and supervisory roles.

Registered Nurses interested in pursuing this program for professional advancement need to attend an online interview and complete an enrollment agreement. They should also be ready to explain how they intend to fund their schooling. All students will go through an orientation before starting classes.

Education in Partnership

Independence University partners with over 500 hospitals and healthcare units worldwide to provide hands-on clinical instruction and practical experience to its healthcare education students. According to the college estimates, one or more of their graduates have found employment in 70 percent of all hospitals and healthcare units in the country.
