Sharing in your passion for helping people.
We share in your passion for helping others—that’s why our nursing programs focus on providing you with the skills you need to provide quality patient care in your future career. And because we care about you and the community, we work with leading professionals in the industry to ensure our programs are relevant to today’s healthcare demands.
Nurses are essential to helping patients heal, stay healthy, and improve their quality of life. When you become a nurse, you are committing to patient well-being. A nurse often has more contact with the patient and is the conduit of communication with the interdisciplinary team.
The cyclical shortage of qualified nurses over the past two decades has been well-documented, and in the coming years the need for nurses will continue to rise. Earning a nursing degree from National American University can help you find a healthcare career path that is essential, rewarding, and expected to grow over the next decade.
