Overview

In nursing, a baccalaureate-level education matters. In fact, a national goal set by the Institute of Medicine recommends that 80 percent of the nursing workforce earn a bachelor’s degree by the year 2020. Why? Studies show that when the percentage of baccalaureate-prepared nurses is higher, so are patient outcomes. 

Elevate patient care while you accelerate your career with Franklin University’s B.S. Nursing. Our RN-to-BSN degree-completion program can help strengthen both your clinical and leadership competencies.
