    Employment and Transfer Information

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 26 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur primarily because of technological advancements, an increased emphasis on preventative care, and the large, aging baby-boomer population who will demand more healthcare services as they live longer and more active lives.

    The median annual wage of registered nurses was $64,690 in May 2010.

    The Associate of Sciences Degree Nursing Program is approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing and accredited by:

    Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)
