Why Choose A Bachelor's Degree In Nursing?
As America’s population ages, the need for skilled nurses is increasing. According to the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nursing profession is growing at a rate much faster than average. Even if you’re interested in working with children or in another area, technology and specializations require an up-to-date education. And in more and more cases, nurses in these positions hold a bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
The National Academy of Medicine recommends that the nursing profession increase the percentage of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80% within the next two years. Argosy University’s nursing program, offered in Northern Virginia, Atlanta, Hawaii, and Twin Cities, is an opportunity to move up in a career where you help others while growing professionally. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists nursing as a career with a median pay of $70,000 per year.
