BJC | Nurses interested in pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing degree have many flexible options today that allow them to balance their professional and personal lives. (See information below.)
Thanks to the BJC Institute for Learning and Development (BILD) and its partnerships with area nursing schools, an increasing number of BJC nurses have earned their degree or are currently enrolled in these programs.
“Our academic partnerships provide a convenient option for BJC registered nurses to earn their degree, while still balancing their commitments to work and family,” says Beth Camp, BILD senior learning and development consultant for academic partnerships. “Each program helps prepare nurses for the challenging and changing profession.”
For nurses who wish to advance their clinical roles or want to pursue a career in management, a BSN degree has become a requirement, she adds.
At this time, BILD has nine partnerships: Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College, McKendree University, Central Methodist University (CMU), Chamberlain University, Maryville University, Saint Louis University, Webster University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) and the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL). Programs include online and classroom options at the BJC Learning Institute, as well as locations at BJC hospitals.
For more information about the BILD RN-to-BSN partnerships, email AcademicPartnerships@bjc.org or visit www.BJCLearn.org. Eligible employees can use tuition benefits to help pay for tuition.
