Why You Should Consider Becoming a Nurse

It’s not easy to commit to a career change, but knowing more about your potential future career can help you make an informed, educated decision.

A High-Demand Field

By completing the Accelerated BSN program at Marian University and become a registered nurse, you can proceed with confidence knowing that your chosen profession is in high demand and your degree will be valued by quality health care facilities across the country.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 7 percent by 2029, adding more than 200,000 new nurses to the workforce in competitive, high-paying careers.

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing is also a necessary first step to pursuing graduate coursework in nursing, which can lead to advanced career opportunities down the road.

Diverse Job Opportunities

These days being a nurse doesn’t mean you have to work on a hospital floor. As the health care needs of our country continue to evolve and expand, there are a wide variety of facilities that require the skills of a baccalaureate-educated nurse, including:

  • Urgent Care Clinics
  • Corporate Clinics
  • Nursing Care Facilities
  • Military Bases
  • School Systems

High Job Security

The BLS lists nursing as one of the fastest growing professions in the country. However, if applicant supply does not meet health care demand—a situation we currently face—our nation could see huge nursing shortfalls taking place over the next decade . Therefore, with so many positions that need to be filled at health care facilities across the nation, a high level of job security comes with being a nurse.

Top reasons nurses are in high demand:

  • Better access to health care insurance
  • Increased emphasis on preventive health care
  • More individuals suffering from chronic conditions
  • Aging baby-boomers requiring additional medical services
