A Better Path to Your BSN

and earn your bachelor’s degree in as little as 12 months with affordable tuition. Along the
way, you’ll work closely with outstanding faculty who bring years of nursing experience to
the classroom. Your BSN opens the door to career advancement, increased responsibility and higher salary potential.

  • More job opportunities. Your BSN degree will position you to earn an advanced degree that will qualify you for positions such as advanced practice nurse, nurse educator, clinical nurse specialist and more.

  • Higher earnings potential. On average, BSN-prepared nurses earn more than RNs—both because employers value the degree and because they qualify for higher-paying positions.
  • Interdisciplinary skills. The liberal arts courses you’ll take in Dominican’s BSN program will help you develop communication, problem-solving and leadership skills—essential factors in a fulfilling career as a nurse.
