The need for highly qualified nurses continues to grow in the United States. And alongside it, so does the demand for highly educated nurses who hold a bachelor’s degree.
Perhaps that is why you are here. It has been a long-time dream of yours to become a nurse, but the field has quickly become a competitive landscape. Nurses all over the country are turning their RN degrees into BSN degrees and landing jobs in this in-demand field.
Just the thought of committing to a four-year bachelor’s program can feel intimidating for many potential students. It’s no wonder why. Four-year nursing programs can be costly – students often have to balance full-time schoolwork with their lives and still manage to pay the bills. Not to mention, wait lists for enrollment into nursing schools are often long and discouraging. We completely get it.
But with the increasing emphasis on higher education in nursing, there is no doubt that earning a BSN degree is your best bet to increasing job prospects and landing the career of your dreams. So how do you get there? How do you manage it all – college, clinicals, a part-time or full-time job?
An accelerated nursing program may just be the answer you are looking for. This style of fast-track learning offers students like you an avenue to pursue intensive nursing courses over a much shorter period of time. Which is great – but what if there was an accelerated nursing program that was also willing to work with you, with your schedule, on your terms?
As an accredited nursing school in Connecticut, that’s what Goodwin College aims to do. We tailor our accelerated nursing programs to meet the different needs of our students. No matter if you are an aspiring or seasoned nurse, we certainly have a nursing program for you.
