Since 2006, 95% of our BSN graduates have found jobs in the field, are continuing their education or are serving in the military.
Due to state authorization requirements for distance learning that are particular to each state, students who reside in Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada and North Carolina can no longer be enrolled in online classes at St. Petersburg College as long as they are residents of those states. If you have questions regarding this new policy, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The shortest wait times are in the morning. To be sure you will see an advisor, please arrive at least one hour before closing. Limited services may be available up to an hour before closing, depending on the number of students waiting.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that by 2020, 80% of nurses should have a bachelor’s degree to meet the expanding health care needs of Americans. Job prospects are better for registered nurses with a bachelor’s degree. Overall, employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 26% through 2020, faster than average.
The baccalaureate program at St. Petersburg College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation).
An increasingly complex health care system requires better educated nurses. Getting your Bachelor of Science in Nursing from SPC gives you a solid foundation for advancing your career and improving your skills. Many employers now require nurses be adept in critical thinking, quality improvement, systems thinking and team leadership. If you are an R.N., our program delivers that and more in a flexible, online format.
