    Translate Your Compassion, Caring, and Knowledge Into the Diverse Nursing Profession

    A nursing career promises a diverse choice of settings. Hospitals, home care health agencies, community clinics, public schools, and long-term care facilities all need qualified nurses. Caring for the needs of others cultivates an emotive dimension to the science of medicine. By showing respect and expressing understanding, compassion, and competence you simultaneously serve your community and enrich your own life.

    Join the Growing Allied Health Community

    Concurrent with the need for nurses is the growth in allied health professions. There are over 5 million allied health professionals in the United States.
