Why Earn A BSN?

Lots of reasons! Earning a BSN can dramatically increase your earning potential: BSN-prepared nurses earn on average $600K more over the lifetime of their career. It will also help you advance up UPMC’s My Nursing Career Ladder, expanding your opportunities. And finally, when you earn your BSN from Chatham, you’ll obtain nursing skills that you can put immediately into practice, improving patient care.
