This article tells that increasing the level of RN to BSN is very important as it contributes to improving the quality of services provided by nurses. BSNs master a large amount of information and become true professionals as they master the skills that allow them to work with patients most effectively. In practice, BSNs are the most popular and effective, because thanks to new knowledge and experience, they cope with the tasks better than RNs. A significant role in the transition is played by management personnel since personal factors are most important when mastering BSN skills, rather than any external factors such as society.

This article describes the necessary quality of nurses, such as competence, which is the basis for obtaining new knowledge and skills. It is a competence that demonstrates the level of nursing education and the practical component of nursing. Competency models have been created that make it possible to create such training programs that allow nurses to gain the necessary knowledge and practical skills to transition from to BSN. The expected results are creating an effective competence model, educational sessions, and the identification of knowledge gaps.
