The demand for registered nurses (RNs) and nurses with advanced degrees is greater now than ever before! 

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported we will need more than 203,000 RNs every year through 2031 to meet the healthcare needs of the aging population and the aging workforce.  By 2060, the number of Americans aged 65 or over will exceed 90 million people with many requiring nursing care. There is a tremendous opportunity for nurses to make a difference in improving the health of millions of people nationwide. Nurses provide care in various settings from schools, churches, and clinics to acute care facilities like hospitals with specialties in medical-surgical areas, surgery, emergency, pediatrics, and more. Nursing has been rated the most trusted profession in the United States for over 20 years, with people (79%) reporting nurses to have “high” or “very high” honesty and ethical standards. So, today is the perfect time to begin or continue your career in nursing!
