Online Nursing Program Career Outlook

Nursing is projected to grow at a faster rate than the national average for all occupations.1 The online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from the University of Saint Mary not only prepares you to take a leadership role in this burgeoning practice, but also zeroes in on two of the most aggressively growing segments of the nursing profession – Nursing Education and Nursing Administration. Consider these employment statistics:

  • The AACN reports nearly 1,500 faculty vacancies in nursing schools for the 2020-2021 academic year2
  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 7% increase in nursing jobs by 20293

The online MSN from the University of Saint Mary also includes courses and optional clinical hours that may prepare you for application to a doctorate program. Doctorate-level nursing degrees unlock teaching opportunities at the graduate level and open the door to even higher executive positions in hospitals and other health care agencies.
