Professional Nursing Career Path for non-nurses

Professional nursing is the nation’s top professions in terms of projected job growth.

According to the latest projections from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics published in the November 2009 Monthly Labor Review, more than 581,500 new nursing positions will be created through 2018 (a 22.2% increase).

Nursing professionals are one of the most highly respected and stable professions in the United States. Nursing is especially attractive to immigrants because it is one of only few professions which almost guarantee a high-income employment, secure a sense of prestige, and lead to a stable life with a green card in the American society.  Also, American nursing professionals are also welcomed in other countries as well.

“The Prospective Nursing Program” is offered through the Medical Career Path Division of The Academy at Harvard Square in conjunction with The University of Massachusetts (UMass) Boston.  UMass Boston’s nursing degree program is recognized as one of the top nursing educations in the United States (50th in national rank, US news & world report, 2011).
