Bachelor of Science in Nursing

About the Degree:

Typically, nurses are considered the backbone of the healthcare industry. They are the first and the last to interact with patients and their families — their people skills have to be just as important as their knowledge of nursing science. As our population ages, as the Baby Boomers grow closer to retirement, the need for qualified and compassionate nurses is going to be great. This is why obtaining a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing  is so important. And according to the U.S. Labor Department, employment for Registered Nurses is extremely favorable, with a 26 percent growth rate anticipated between now and 2020.
