The Nursing Field Sees Increasing Demand

The demand for nursing professionals is anticipated to rise steadily in the coming decade, driven by the aging population. Although becoming a registered nurse (RN) opens doors to the nursing profession, many nurses discover that a Bachelor of Nursing degree is essential for career progression and expanded job opportunities. UHV’s Nursing program enables registered nurses to pursue their BSN degree fully online, at a low cost, and with an accredited university that is recognized by many. With its fully online coursework, many students discover the flexibility to balance work and educational advancement simultaneously.

Note: For RN to BSN program, applicants must have graduated from an accredited nursing program in any state and currently hold an unencumbered RN license. For the Concurrent Enrollment Nursing pathway, students must be admitted to the Victoria College Registered Nursing Program.
