Our mission is to provide a range of high quality undergraduate and graduate nursing programs to meet the changing health care needs of a global society. Why Choose Nursing as a Career? If you want your life work to make a difference in the lives of others, nursing can be an excellent career for you. Nursing is the largest health care profession and one of the fastest growing. The job market is continuing to expand for nurses with a BSN or higher level degrees and nursing graduates command some of the highest starting salaries for college graduates. Nurses Make the World a Better Place When graduates of different majors across the US were asked about the importance of their work, Nurses were the most likely to say that their work makes the world a better place.
