Why Study Nursing?

Nursing is an exciting and challenging career for both men and women. Nursing attracts individuals who have strong values and a respect for human life and the ability to show compassion for their patients. Nursing offers financial security and job security as well.

Ask your self:

  • Are you compassionate, caring, loyal, and dedicated to the people you will be helping or working with?
  • Do you love people and love talking to them?
  • Can you function in a stressful, sometimes chaotic, environment and still retain control of the situation?
  •  If you have the desire and drive to do something with your life that will improve the lives of others.

If you answered "yes," then nursing may be
for you.
