It’s all about patient care.

Nursing is a deeply rewarding profession. Voted the most trusted profession for 15 years in a row (and counting!), few others have the opportunity to impact people’s lives so profoundly in their moment of need. And the opportunity to meet that need is growing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the number of jobs for registered nurses is expected to grow another 16 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than for other occupations. Patients—and employers—need more highly skilled nurses.
