Being a registered nurse is one of the most rewarding and challenging of all professional careers. As a registered nurse, you will have the opportunity to promote health, serve humanity and experience the self-satisfaction of a rewarding career. At the UWA Division of Nursing, we help to prepare students for lifelong success in nursing.
The career outlook for nursing is excellent. A shortage of nurses has led hospitals and other employers to offer flexible work schedules, educational benefits and other incentives to retain existing staff and to recruit new graduates.
Your journey begins here at UWA, but there are many career paths for registered nurses including ambulatory care nurses, emergency nurses, home health nurses, medical-surgical nurses, mental health nurses and many more. The UWA Division of Nursing prides itself on a greater than 92% employment rate among its graduates over the last five years.
The Making of a Nurse
Jennifer Collins, Charge Nurse at Baptist Princeton Medical Center
Not everyone goes to college knowing what they want to be. Jennifer Collins found her calling and her time in the Division of Nursing set the course of her life.
We believe that nursing is a calling. If our students hear that calling, we want to do everything it takes to help them achieve their dream. Our purpose at UWA Division of Nursing is to give our students the skills, experience, and opportunities that they need to build a successful nursing career.
