Well, I think you answered your own question!
With the Bachelors of Science in nursing you increase the area of skills you are capable of doing and providing giving you more of a variety of what you can do.
I’m taking the bsn by Unitek College and the whole reason I enrolled is because of the guarantee of work with a higher degree, better pay and because I love being an RN but needed to make more $ or else I was going to look for a different career. The cost of living just keeps going up and with the republicans acting like they are, if they get into the white house, there will be no way to get ahead in this world unless you are already rich or move to a higher degree.
I don’t mean to say you are rich with a higher degree so don’t take me wrong, but at least with the higher degree you can have a few bucks left over after you pay your monthly bills than you do with a lower degree.
Yes you should easily find work. A few of my co-workers have a bachelor’s degree and have easily been able to find work. Believe me, I asked many questions before starting the bsn program!
As for the research side of things, on some occasions or certain situations you may have to deal with patients but nothing like you are now.
