North Park University

Bachelor of Nursing

If you want to work in a healthcare setting, and enjoy working with and helping people from many walks of life, nursing will teach you the clinical skills needed for a successful career in a hospital, community health setting, long-term care, professional organization, or church. Nursing graduate programs will allow you to expand your credentials and responsibilities, whether in a medical specialty, administration, research, consulting, or educational role.
