Our Graduate Success Stories
I really like my teachers a lot. They really care and they don't want you to fail. They are there if you need them. If you do fail something, you only have yourself to blame, because the teachers try to help you in every way possible.
Akron - Nursing
Great opportunities for both men and women in healthcare's largest career field.
With more than 2.5 million jobs, registered nursing today constitutes the largest healthcare occupation. The demand for more nurses is due to two major factors:
- The aging population will result in more patients, and a larger number of nurses will be retiring from the workplace
- New medical procedures will require greater nursing involvement
Today, registered nurses do more than ever before. Their responsibilities include recording patient health histories and symptoms, helping perform diagnostic tests, operating medical equipment, administering treatments and medications, and assisting with patient follow-up and rehabilitation.
Entry-level nursing positions require at least a diploma or associate degree. A Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree however, provides more career opportunities as well as the option to advance into graduate programs to pursue advanced practice, management, and nursing faculty positions. Nurses at all levels have a broad array of career opportunities available in virtually every type of healthcare facility including primary care offices, clinics, hospitals, special care units, nursing homes, health departments, occupational health programs, school health services, mental health centers, home health, hospices, assisted living centers, research labs and more.
If you want to get in on the cutting edge of patient care, this is the field for you.
A career in Nursing could be right for you if you want to:
- Learn and work with new healthcare technologies
- Help patients understand their health issues and treatments
- Experience new challenges and opportunities
- Expand your career potential in healthcare
- Help people feel better and prevent illness
- Understand the human body and its various systems
- Teach or consult
