The past year alone demonstrated how important nurses are, true heros on the frontline of the pandemic, to patients, families, and communities. The demand for professional nurses and healthcare providers will continue to grow and the career opportunities are limitless.

Nursing offers a meaningful professional pathway and the ability to earn a highly desirable salary immediately after college graduation. Nurses who understand their patient’s culture, community, food, customs, religious views, and speak the same language can contribute more effectively to their patients' care.
