The Demand for Nurses & Higher Education

The demand for nurses with higher levels of education is higher now than ever before and growing rapidly. According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Institute of Medicine, the way nurses were educated in the 20th century are no longer adequate for dealing with the realities of health care in the 21st century. Patient needs and care environments are more complex. Will you be ready?

Nurses need to be prepared with the following competencies for future success:

  • leadership
  • health policy
  • system improvement
  • research and evidence-based practice
  • teamwork and collaboration

We are here to prepare you for the future needs of nursing while strengthening the foundations of patient-centered, evidence-based practice.

Why Gonzaga Nursing?

While you’re crunching numbers and schedules, trying to choose an online nursing program that will fit your life and goals, we’d love to share some of our best features with you.

  • Pass Rates: Our students consistently achieve pass rates well above the national pass rate averages.
  • Experience: Our nursing programs have been delivering distance education for more than 30 years. Our faculty is experienced in working with online students and teaching in online platforms.
  • Practicing Faculty: Gonzaga nursing faculty walks the talk. All nurse practitioner faculty still actively work in healthcare and provide students access to current healthcare policy issues, evolving trends, and real-world challenges facing the industry.
  • Jesuit: Gonzaga online nursing students experience the subtle, yet intentional infusion of the Jesuit mission of men and women for others. This humanistic approach creates a community that encourages an exchange of knowledge with and among each other—the faculty, the students, and the communities in which they live and work to impact change. Check out this video about what being Jesuit means to us and how it impacts you.
  • Systems thinking: Graduates of Gonzaga’s online nursing programs are prepared to engage in systems thinking to solve complex problems, translate evidence to improve health care practices and population health, lead quality improvement and change initiatives, and demonstrate effective leadership and intraprofessional collaboration.
