This study compares RN-to-BSN completion graduates and generic BSN graduates in frequency of critical nursing activities performed when caring for patients and in degree of commitment to the profession. Results indicate that RN-to-BSN completion graduates perform in a manner similar to generic BSN graduates; however, RN-to-BSN graduates more frequently demonstrated professional commitment such as attending continuing education programs, and furthering their education. These findings support not only the current RN-to-BSN completion education programs but also the value of this cohort to the nursing profession.
