– Important to Compare Apples to Apples When Choosing a BSN Program –
AURORA, Colo. – November 6, 2013 – Nurses that are currently thinking about pursuing a BSN degree – or have begun to do their research – may find it challenging to compare nursing schools on an even playing field because of the varying prices, admissions requirements, culture and resources offered by each school’s BSN programs.
American Sentinel University’s new complimentary e-book, ‘Make Sure You’re Not Comparing Apples to Oranges’ offers objective tips, questions to ask and a handy school comparison checklist so that nurses can compare “apples to apples” when considering different BSN programs.
“Earning a RN-to-BSN degree is an important step in a nurse’s career because it opens doors to promotions, higher salaries and helps them earn greater respect from other health care professionals,” says Karen Whitham, EdDc, MSN, RN, CNE, chair RN-BSN program at American Sentinel University.
Whitham says that a BSN prepares nurses for leadership, research and educational roles in hospitals’ management or in the private sector. And it’s the first step toward furthering their education, such as earning a MSN or DNP.
Apples to Apples Comparison Key to Making an Informed Decision
‘Make Sure You’re Not Comparing Apples to Oranges,’ is a must read for nurses who are looking for guidance about the most important questions to ask when evaluating different nursing schools, such as:

- How much will this school cost?
- How long will it take to earn a BSN at this school?
“Nurses can be faced with a daunting number of choices, but our e-book goes step-by-step to help them understand what they’ll need to think about when comparing schools to make an informed decision,” says Whitham.
