Job Growth Outlook:

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for healthcare services is expected to continue to increase over the next ten years because of the aging population, given that older people typically have more medical problems than younger people. In addition, growth is also expected to be faster than average in outpatient care centers, where patients do not stay overnight, such as those which provide same-day chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and surgery.

As a result of this increased growth, and the need to replace workers who retire, overall job opportunities are expected to be good and the employment of Registered Nurses is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations from 2018 to 2028.*

Preparation for Licensure

Students completing the ADN program are qualified to apply for licensure through the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN). Once a graduate is made eligible by the BRN, the graduate may take the NCLEX-RN, and the college provides on-going NCLEX-RN preparation and personalized remediation aimed toward student success.

Professional Licensure Disclosure
