You can also be stretched to care for yourself, your team, your patients, and their families physically, emotionally and spiritually. At Regent, we address the whole you, integrating knowledge and faith, so you can do the same for others. There are several benefits of achieving an advanced nursing degree. So whether you are looking to update your skills and qualifications with an RN to B.S. in Nursing, move into leadership with an MSN degree, take the next step into advanced practice with an MSN APRN degree, or advance your role as a clinical or administrative nurse leader with our DNP or DNP APRN degree options, Regent can help you thrive competitively and increase your potential to advance in your career.
