BSN programs teach nursing students a wide range of subjects and courses including anatomy, biochemistry, clinical microbiology, nutrition, physiology, behavioral science, and communication. Graduates of BSN programs are expected to: know how to integrate their academic knowledge into their nursing practice; implement health promotion and disease prevention plans; and demonstrate and uphold their ethical and professional nursing values while practicing.

Upon graduating from a BSN program, an individual generally has more career options and is more likely to have a higher starting salary compared to RNs or registered nurses who have only taken an associate's degree. Some of the career options and work opportunities that BSN program graduates can choose from include becoming a general registered nurse, a public health nurse, a military nurse, a charge nurse, an emergency room registered nurse or a nursing manager or nursing director. BSN graduates can also opt to continue their education and become an advanced practice nurse like a CNM or a certified nurse midwife or an NP or a nurse practitioner.
