If you’re interested in nursing, you’re not alone. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 2.5 million nurses in the United States —the largest workforce within the clinical healthcare industry.
What’s more, as more and more baby boomers retire, the U.S. is projected to experience a nursing shortage. Just as there are several types of nurses, there are several paths you can take to make your nursing career dream a reality: a bachelor’s degree in the Science of Nursing, an accredited nursing program at a hospital or an associate degree program. There are also online nursing degree programs.
