Another excellent benefit Medical Solutions offers its Travelers is the RN to BSN Program. With this program we aim to help nurses with their associate’s degree or nursing diploma get their BSN online while they continue to work.
Your life is busy, and we get that. But we are serious about helping our Travelers with their professional development and would love to see you grow as a nurse and unlock greater earning potential by getting your BSN.
So, Medical Solutions has partnered with the University of Saint Mary to offer Travelers a flexible, two-year, completely online RN to BSN program that’s accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
Maybe you’ve been wanting to earn your BSN, but weren’t sure how you pay for or make time for classes while working. If so, the RN to BSN Program is designed with exactly you in mind. Through this partnership we offer Travelers financial assistance that includes books and tuition while they’re traveling with Medical Solutions.
“A Travel Nurse can really benefit from being BSN prepared,” says Medical Solutions’ Clinical Director of Nursing, Amber Barna. “There are additional courses and training which help prepare nurses to manage any type of scenario they may encounter. The BSN-prepared nurse will also have more job and earnings opportunity as we are seeing more hospitals that require a BSN to work in their facility, including Magnet and Non-Magnet hospitals.”
Traveler Melissa E. shared her story of taking advantage of the program in pursuit of her goals to eventually become a nurse educator or Nurse Practitioner. She urges other nurses to “go for it.”
“There is no other way to get your BSN and have your company foot most of the bill,” she says. “Perm jobs require you to work there at least six months before you can get tuition reimbursement and then usually only reimburse a few thousand a year. This program works out to almost $8000 a year and MS pays most of that!”
With three start dates left in 2014, there’s no better time for you to begin your BSN journey to better qualifications, more job opportunities, and higher earnings!
