As an Academic Medical Center and nursing profession, we are committed to lifelong learning.  The growth and development of our UVA Medical Center Registered Nurses is a high priority. We continue to pursue our goal of an 80% BSN workforce by 2020 to meet the recommendations outlined in the IOM Future of Nursing Report.

To support our nursing colleagues in achieving a BSN degree, UVA Medical Center provides significant resources and structures to encourage and support academic progression.
