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:
- 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.
