What Can I Do with a BSN?

Director of Nursing
Median Salary: $94,500*

Online BSN can prepare graduates to work as a Director of Nursing.

If you’re drawn to an operational role, consider your future as a director of nursing. This role is closely tied to training nurses, so it’s ideal for RNs who seek to move beyond patient care and into an education or administrative position. It also requires a keen sense of current healthcare laws, so it’s important to strengthen your knowledge of policy as well.

Nurse Manager
Median Salary: $81,132*

Online BSN can prepare graduates to work as a Nurse Manager.

For RNs who aspire to BSN jobs tied to a supervisor role, you can build management skills to advance to the nurse manager position. It requires greater knowledge of policy, standards, and regulations, but does not remove you completely from the familiar settings devoted to patient care. As nurse manager, you would have duties like hiring nurses, creating schedules, conducting nurse reviews, and more.

Clinical Educator
Median Salary: $70,767*

Online BSN can prepare graduates to work as a Clinical Educator.

If healthcare needs more nurses, it also needs more nurses who can train them. By becoming a clinical educator, you can help educate and strengthen health systems by teaching nurses, healthcare workers, patients, insurance providers, or other stakeholders. Clinical educators typically work in healthcare settings or within specialized education.
