Share This Story

Longmeadow, MA– Bay Path University has been ranked as one of the top online nursing programs for obtaining a bachelor’s degree by the research group Online U.
Online U evaluates colleges based on alumni salaries and debt reported to the government, calculating a 10-year ROI score to determine which schools lead to the best financial outcomes for graduates.

At number six on Online U’s ranking, Bay Path’s nursing alumni earn an average of $97,800, well above the median and more than most nursing grads across the country.

“In addition to the salary benefits that come with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, we’re seeing just how critical it is to build a strong workforce of healthcare providers,” says Marjorie Robinson-Bessette, the Academic Director of Health and Nursing; at Bay Path.“The healthcare sector is increasingly complex, and it is an opportune moment for committed, passionate RNs to translate their experience into leadership, research, and public health roles. Our program gives registered nurses the knowledge, skills, and attributes to move into those roles.”

Multiple studies find that hospitals and providers with a greater percentage of nurses holding BSN degrees yield reductions in mortality and improvements in quality of care and patient safety, leading the Institute of Medicine to recommend that at least 80 percent of nurses hold a BSN or higher qualification.
