Advancement Prospects

Administrative and supervisory positions in the nursing field go to nurses who have earned at least a bachelor of science degree in nursing. Nurses with many years of experience who are graduates of the diploma program may achieve supervisory positions, but requirements for such promotions have become more difficult in recent years and in many cases require at least a bachelor of science in nursing degree. Psychiatric registered nurses can pursue graduate degrees in nursing to move up to the position of advanced practice psychiatric nurse.
