Nursing:

Did you know, nursing is the nation's largest health care profession? However, due to an increased demand for trained nurses, combined with current workforce shortages, the industry is experiencing faster than average growth (which is expected through the year 2020 and beyond). Earnings are above average, particularly for advanced practical nurses who have additional education and certifications. Driven by technological developments, rapid advancements in disease prevention and health promotion, increased public awareness of health concerns, and a booming, aging population, this field offers our students a wide variety of job openings, ranging from traditional patient care to health care administration.
