Is it better to have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or a Bachelor of Nursing?

  1. I am a current student studying a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with discontinued studies in Bachelor of Science in Midwifery from Australia. I will be moving to the United States in a year and was wondering if it was worth to stay in my Bachelor of Science degree however feeling underprepared or transfer to another univeristy which better prepares you with more clinical hours and practical skills but not have a Bachelor of Science but a Bachelor of Nursing isntead.

    Greetings! In the US, most four year programs offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. There are some three year programs that are Associate Degree in Nursing. I would stick with the BSN track, as most hospitals are moving towards only hiring BSN prepared nurses.
