A Bachelor of Science degree in nursing provides a variety of career choices. Upon successful completion of the BS nursing program and the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), baccalaureate-prepared nurses are able to choose from a wide variety of practice settings. Additionally, unlike graduates prepared with an associate degree in nursing, baccalaureate-prepared nurses are able to pursue advanced degrees in nursing, including programs that prepare them for careers as adult or pediatric nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurse midwives or certified nurse anesthetists. Doctorate level education is also possible for baccalaureate-prepared nurses who wish to pursue a PhD or DNP (doctorate in nursing practice).
