Patients aren’t the only ones who can get better with Baptist

Everyone wants to improve, but it can be difficult to find time, and sometimes the money, to do it.

Everyone wants to improve, but it can be difficult to find time, and sometimes the money, to do it. Fortunately, members of our clinical team have the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in a convenient, affordable way.

It’s important to me that you have the chance to advance your career, and if you are interested in a clinical track, earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree helps you do that. Thanks to the Baptist College of Health Sciences and the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation, nurses can earn a BSN degree partially or completely online. The RN-BSN completion degree program offers students two options: a blended format, where you can take both on campus and online courses; and the online format, where 100 percent of your core courses can be completed from your home computer or mobile device.

Also, the Baptist Foundation has established the Foundation Education Assistance Program (FEAP), which can cover your tuition. To apply for FEAP, you can talk to your human resources director or nurse manager.

Graduates of our RN-BSN completion program have a strong track record of career advancement because the degree gives you the knowledge, skills and confidence to broaden your career options and become a leader in the nursing profession. Also, according to a recent Memphis Business Journal article, Baptist College graduates have the best ratio of post-enrollment earnings to average annual net cost of attendance; the median salary of our graduates is $54,100, while the annual average net cost of attending is $9,287.

Baptist College team members are visiting hospitals to give you more information about this exciting opportunity, but you can also call the admissions office at 901-575-2247 or send an email to admissions@bchs.edu. I will focus on career development opportunities for other clinical and nonclinical roles in future letters.

I hope you can take advantage of these benefits of being a Baptist team member. You deserve it.

Let me know what you think of this and other career development opportunities by emailing me, tweeting me @jason_m_little or finding me on LinkedIn.
