Utah Nursing Schools

Also known as an accelerated BSN, a second degree BSN is designed for people who already have a bachelor’s degree in some other field but want to switch their field and become registered nurses. A second degree BSN usually takes around 12 to 19 months; however, some programs could take as long as 2 years. During this span of time, candidates are required to take nursing-specific courses, most of which are compressed to accommodate faster pace towards graduation. This program also develops students’ research, communication, clinical and leadership skills. There are a few pre-requisite courses that students need to take before they can apply for a second degree BSN program. Earning this degree qualifies candidates for various positions in the field of nursing including nurse managers, case managers, schools nurses, care coordinators, health educators, registered nurses, etc. Candidates who further their education increase their chances of qualifying for positions in administration and getting better salaries
