Nurses with higher levels of education translate into better outcomes for patients.


RNs with a bachelor’s degree will often be able to secure the following managerial positions with higher salaries: head nurse, department chief, administrative manage, nurse anesthetist, clinical nurse manager, and nurse practitioner.
