Nowadays, advancing your education is crucial if you are looking to advance your nursing career. Often, nurses pursue a graduate degree to attain a higher level of licensure, seek a more specialized scope of practice, and earn a better salary. Following the path of nursing careers from an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and beyond can be intimidating, but changing requirements are pushing nurses to further their education. Hospitals around the country are putting plans into motion requiring nurses from ADN status to enroll in a bachelor program, and BSN's are enrolling in master's and doctorate programs to stay ahead of the curve.
