Nursing careers after graduation

Choose an in-demand profession

Today, there is a significant nursing shortage, and statistics show that the need for nurses in years to come will only become greater. Here's why:

  • Advances in health care are helping people live longer, so there are more elderly people who need care.
  • The number of people who are sicker and in need of more skilled nurses is growing.
  • More nurses are needed outside of the hospital setting.
  • The current nursing workforce is aging. As more nurses retire (many are expected to retire over the next 10-15 years), more will be needed to replace them.

Nurses, particularly those with a BSN, are almost guaranteed jobs right out of college and can be assured of a secure career well into the future.
