How to Select an RN to BSN Program

Posted on Tue, Dec 10, 2019

As a registered nurse, the decision to go back to school can be daunting. You've already worked hard to earn your Registered Nurse (RN) license, and that's a big accomplishment. 

If you're looking for next steps, earning your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is a great move. There's a push to make the BSN the standard entry for nursing. Many hospitals and health systems are following suit by requiring their nurses to have bachelor's degrees. 

The idea of going back for your BSN is an excellent choice and will set you up for a world of opportunities, including greater access to jobs, promotions and better pay to name a few.

Nebraska Methodist College put together a list of questions to help you research RN to BSN programs and find the one that is the best fit for you!

Everything You Need To Know About NMC's New Cardiovascular Sonography Program

Posted on Tue, Dec 03, 2019

Nebraska Methodist College (NMC) is now offering a bachelor's degree option in Cardiovascular Sonography. Classes began August 2019, with the first students graduating in spring 2022 with their bachelor’s degree.

As the role of the sonographer has evolved, NMC decided to offer a bachelor's degree option to keep up with the education demand for this role from several institutions. A bachelor’s degree will also advance students’ careers in this field.

“A cardiovascular sonographer’s role is vital to the cardiologists and the vascular doctors for treatment of the patient. Having a higher education demonstrates that a sonographer is well educated in their support role to the physicians,” Becca Bouckaert, MPA, RDCS, RVT, program director for the Cardiovascular Sonography program at NMC, said. “This role has evolved over the years, and more and more sites are requesting sonographers with a higher education. At NMC, we want to offer a variety of tracks to accommodate every student.”
