Department of Nursing

Nursing is one of the most trusted professions, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics cites nursing as one of the fastest-growing careers in the country. As the job market expands, you can enter the workforce with academic credentials that give you a distinct clinical advantage.

Nurses graduating from bachelor’s and master’s nursing programs are much more likely to receive a job offer upon graduation than professionals in almost any other field, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. And that’s just one of the reasons to study nursing.

Towson University’s nursing programs prepare students to play key roles in delivering outstanding health care to individuals, families, groups and communities. Working independently and collaboratively, nurses have the ability to guide and influence the healthy behavior of others and improve the overall health of the nation.
