Studies show that 39% of hospitals and other healthcare settings now require new RNs to have a baccalaureate degree in nursing, and 77% express a strong preference for nurses educated at this level. BSN graduates can often command higher salaries and are more likely to be considered for roles in leadership, research and education.
