Why should you pursue your BSN at GMercyU's night nursing school? A BSN degree is the standard for entry-level nursing positions today and is increasingly a prerequisite for work in hospital settings. Offered on our 314-acre campus in Gwynedd Valley, Pa., our Weekend BSN program can be completed in just three years. Because all face-to-face classes are held on the weekends, you have the option of maintaining your regular work and home schedule during the week. This is an excellent option if you want to become a nurse, but also need to continue working while earning your degree.
