Career Opportunities

Learn about the career opportunities you can have with a Baccalaureate degree in Nursing.

A career in Nursing presents nothing but endless opportunities! Nurses work in various kinds of health care settings and utilize nursing knowledge in interacting with people in various health situations. Nurses and patients interact in the moment. Nursing is an art and a science.

To understand what nurses do, read the following definition of nursing by the American Nurses’ Association:

“Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations.”
– ANA’s Nursing's Social Policy Statement, Second Edition, 2003

Current positions in nursing are available in most any health care setting. Positions for nurses will continue to be needed as people in the U.S. continue to age, and in particular, as nurses themselves age and retire!

Consider nursing as a major if you like people; are a good critical thinker; like the sciences; and can interact with people when they are in compromised health situations.
