The demand for nursing professionals is high—and the career potential is unlimited. A nurse with a baccalaureate degree will find positions in a variety of settings, including emergency rooms, critical care units, operating rooms/surgical centers, maternity and other medical units.

Other opportunities include home care nursing, clinics, hospices, and rehabilitation centers, as well as careers in research, administration and community health.

Graduates of the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs will find employment as nurse practitioners and as nurse executives and managers. Advanced education affords these professional nurses opportunities to not only provide highly skilled health care, but to improve the care environment and health outcomes for populations of patients who consider nurses to be members of a "most trusted profession."
