4 reasons our 4 semester nursing program will change your career path
1) You can start a new career in just 4 semesters.
If you already have a bachelor degree in a field other than nursing, you can earn a respected Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree through the University of Sioux Falls’ accelerated nursing program. Classes begin in January and after completing a spring, summer, fall and spring semester you will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and be fully prepared to take the national RN licensing exam, the NCLEX. And you can go in to the exam with confidence! In 2017, USF students’ pass rate was nearly 10 percent above the national average and the highest of all nursing schools in South Dakota.
2) You’ll learn in state-of-the-art nursing facilities.
The University of Sioux Falls nursing program provides a world-class education in a compressed time frame. As an accelerated nursing student, you’ll receive extensive clinical experience with patient contact in your very first semester. You’ll also train on the industry’s best simulation technology.
3) Nursing can be a deeply rewarding career.
For some people, caring for others and helping patients is a priceless experience. Of course, getting a great paycheck doesn’t hurt either. Nursing is a diverse field that allows you to focus on areas of health care that interest you most. Because health care is needed almost everywhere, you have virtually unlimited options for where you can choose to live.
4) Nurses are in high demand.
According to a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report, employment for registered nurses is expected to increase by 16 percent through 2024. This is a much higher growth rate than most other professions. Additionally, more and more employers are seeking nurses that are BSN-educated.
