Prepare for opportunities

Nurses can work in a variety of positions—both in and out of direct patient care. Despite this, the nursing profession continues to face challenges due to stress, burnout, and retirement. A recent NCSBN study revealed these challenges will continue with over 600,000 predicted to leave the workforce by 2027. These vacancies open up a variety of opportunities for nurses with their bachelor’s degree to move into new roles.
