"You will be very surprised at how much you are going to learn that will improve the nursing care you provide. I have found this to be true of nearly all nurses who have returned for their BSN (often reluctantly). At the end of the program, they all wish they had started this program earlier in their career. Just do it!!"

I began teaching to guide students through their maternal-infant theory and clinical courses. This quickly evolved into a love of all levels of students: pre-nursing, nursing, RNs, master's, doctoral, and a variety of interesting EMU majors.

What advice would you give to those considering this online degree program?

You will be very surprised at how much you are going to learn that will improve the nursing care you provide. I have found this to be true of nearly all nurses who have returned for their BSN (often reluctantly). At the end of the program, they all wish they had started this program earlier in their career. Just do it!
