- Currently, both the nursing and medical imaging career fields do not require a bachelor’s degree; however, studies indicate that the more education a healthcare provider has, directly correlates to improved patient outcomes. As a result of the findings from Institute of Medicine’s 2010 report, The Future of Nursing, a national initiative calls for increasing the number of baccalaureate-prepared nurses in the workforce to 80% by the year 2020.
- In addition, a bachelor’s degree with an emphasis on leadership and management will help excel your career and management opportunities.
- Graduate studies in nursing are flexible for working students. We offer full-time and part-time program options for both our Family Nurse Practitioner and Nurse Educator MSN tracks. If you already hold an advanced-practice degree, we offer a Family Nurse Practitioner Post-Graduate Certificate.
