A Field In Demand
In the next decade, employment growth for registered nurses is projected to increase by 19 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is faster than average for most occupations. Coupled with this, the American Nurses Association is also pushing for nurses to return to the classroom and continue their education, noting the need to stay current with new practices and technologies. Thus, there is no better time than now to return to the classroom and earn the degree that will help stabilize your career.
Grounded in the tradition of liberal arts and founded in 1923, the University of Saint Mary instills students with the decision-making and critical-thinking skills employers desire, along with fostering a sense of community. USM also strives to prepare graduates with the ability to lead organizations and act in a manner that benefits society as a whole.
