The need for registered nurses is strong and growing, encouraged in part by an Institute of Medicine landmark report on The Future of Nursing. The report called for increasing the number of nurses with bachelor’s degrees in the workforce to 80 percent and doubling the population of nurses with doctorates. At National University, you can earn your nursing degree and prepare to enter this expanding field.
If you are new to nursing or already a Licensed Vocational Nurse, you can earn a nursing degree and become Registered Nurse through our BSN Programs. If you’re already a Registered Nurse, you can pursue your bachelor's degree through our RN completion program.
