The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)1 is projecting that over the next decade, nursing will add more jobs to the nation’s economy than almost any other profession. That job growth is projected to increase the number of career opportunities for management-level nursing and teaching positions, which often require a graduate degree.
The online Master of Science in Nursing program at Colorado Technical University is your opportunity to earn a graduate-level nursing degree.
