Advanced Nursing Degrees at Nova Southeastern University – Offered Online!

Secure your career. Change healthcare. Choose the best nursing program for you.

New technologies. New nursing responsibilities. New healthcare policies. There have been so many rapid changes within the healthcare field in recent years.

The focus on evidence-based care is apparent. For instance, as of 2013, the American Nurses Association (ANA) requires 100% of nursing managers to hold a B.S.N. or higher to even qualify for their “Magnet” hospital designation. The Institute of Medicine’s “Vision 2020” recommends all clinical nurses hold a B.S.N., and the ACN backs their recommendation. This means that top healthcare organizations aren’t considering hiring clinical nurses without at least the B.S.N. credential. Advanced nursing roles call for a master’s or doctorate level degree.

Like many things over time, the nursing industry has expanded beyond the skills and knowledge an R.N. credential alone provides. To maintain a lifelong nursing career, or to work in one of the many new nursing positions, you need an advanced nursing degree.
