At OBU, we offer an option to make the transition from licensed practical nurse (LPN) to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The distinction between nursing degrees can affect not only your area of practice, but also your earned income and opportunities for advancement.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a BSN could earn a median annual salary of $66,640; compared to an LPN’s median annual salary of $42,490.
At OBU we want to help you enrich your future, not only academically but spiritually and professionally as well. As with our other programs at OBU, the LPN to BSN program offers an academically exceptional nursing curriculum complemented by a faith-based education. After successful completion of our program, you’ll be ready to maximize your earning potential and your professional opportunities.
