A wide variety of graduate programs are available to students that fall in the category of B.S./B.S.N graduates. This four-year program prepares nurses for practice in all healthcare settings as well as providing the opportunity to continue education in related fields.
As a B.S.N. student, there will be more time to develop skills in communication, critical thinking and leadership. Of course, there will be exposure to more advanced nursing courses, studying such subjects as complex illnesses and perhaps conducting scientific research.
