Students with college degrees in nursing (as opposed to basic technical or practical training) will be prepared for a wide variety of professional opportunities in the field. 100% of our graduates in the last 3 years have been hired upon graduation.
Nurses are highly in demand in many different sectors of the health services industry. As you earn more advanced degrees in nursing, you will get increasingly specialized training and may be eligible for higher-paying jobs. All nurses need to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX) in order to become Registered Nurses (RNs).
BS students who don’t already have an RN license must gain considerable clinical experience before treating patients on their own. Under supervision, they will treat patients, administer medicine, administer medical procedures and tests, and analyze patient reports, among other tasks. Most BS degrees will require students to successfully complete courses such as:
- Human anatomy & physiology
- Variety of clinical experiences in different health care settings
- Nursing care of women & children
- Nursing care of the adults & elderly
- Mental health nursing
- Community and Public Health
BS graduates may go on to have successful careers in specialized fields such as:
- Emergency room care
- Home healthcare
- Mental health
- Critical care
- International heath care settings
- Military health care
