WHAT CAN I DO WHEN I COMPLETE THIS PROGRAM?

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur primarily because of technological advancements, an increased emphasis on preventative care, and the large, aging baby-boomer population who will demand more healthcare services as they live longer and more active lives.

The median annual wage of registered nurses was $71,730* in May 2018.

*Completion of this program does not guarantee this salary.
