Omaha, Nebraska (PRWEB) January 16, 2009 -- Medical Solutions has formed a partnership with University of Saint Mary to offer an accelerated, online RN to BSN Degree Program aimed at registered nurses ready to advance their education and increase their professional opportunities.
With this program, registered nurses can complete the RN to BSN Degree Program from University of Saint Mary in as little as two years. All books, tuition, and other educational costs are covered by Medical Solutions so long as they are traveling as part of the two year program and taking no more than two classes per term.
As the first staffing agency to offer an RN to BSN Degree Program that is completely cost free, Medical Solutions recognizes the importance of staffing hospitals with quality nurses, not just registered nurses, but nurses prepared at the baccalaureate and higher degree levels as well.
Craig Meier, Medical Solutions' Vice President of Sales states the importance of the RN to BSN Degree Program, "By providing nurses with a chance to better themselves and their professional development will translate to lower mortality rates and improved patient care. As a healthcare staffing provider, our number one objective is providing our client hospitals with the highest qualified nurses available."
Nurses working on a traveling assignment will gain an even greater education by adding a hands-on arena to utilize the knowledge they are gaining while in the program. It also allows for flexible scheduling so there is ample time for the nurse to complete the necessary coursework.
The RN to BSN Degree Program was developed with the hectic schedule of nurses in mind. The coursework is done completely online and is self-paced, without any campus obligations. The admission process parallels that of any other collegiate institution, with the primary exception being there are six different program start dates to help nurses maintain the balance between their professional and personal lives.
The RN to BSN Degree Program is an accelerated format designed for nurses who want to complete their degree in a fast-track mode over 24 months. A BSN degree can increase a nurse's opportunities for advancement, strengthen leadership and interpersonal skills, acquire computer literacy, ethical decision-making, and communication skills.
