According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the outlook for careers in registered nursing is excellent. Employment is expected to grow faster than average, particularly for those RNs who have a BSN degree. Hospitals and physicians' offices often offer signing bonuses and increased salaries to these high-achieving nurses. In addition the Veteran's Administration, many community and public health agencies, and several state governments are moving to BSN practice requirements. Numerous professional nursing organizations are also promoting BSN entry to practice for nurses.
