A degree in nursing opens the door to one of the fastest growing and most-in-demand career fields. Research supports the increase in quality outcomes when nurses have a bachelor's degree (BSN) and many hospitals are hiring with a goal of all BSN nurses. Many of Southwestern’s graduates work in specialty areas, leadership and management positions, nursing education, or specialty areas. Many others have completed graduate programs and become nurse practitioners, midwives, or nurse anesthetists. BSN graduates have greater opportunities for career advancement and expanded access to over 100 specialty nursing roles.
