Why Choose MU Nursing?

Nursing Shortage
Nursing is a field that is projected to grow at astounding rates over the next decade. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Employment Projections 2012-2022 released in December 2013, Registered Nursing (RN) is listed among the top occupations in terms of job growth through 2022. The RN workforce is expected to grow from 2.71 million in 2012 to 3.24 million in 2022, an increase of 526,800 or 19%. The Bureau also projects the need for 525,000 replacement nurses in the workforce bringing the total number of job openings for nurses due to growth and replacements to 1.05 million by 2022. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/ecopro.t08.htm. Our program is designed to help meet these challenges by preparing you for a rewarding career as a health care professional.

The BSN Advantage
Graduates from Methodist University and the Professional Nursing Studies Program earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Earning a BSN immediately opens the gateway to an advanced degree in nursing such as a nurse practitioner (NP), nurse anesthetist (CRNA), nurse leader, or a nurse educator. Recognition, merit-based salary increases, clinical ladder progression, and promotions in most hospitals rely on the completion of a BSN.
