Why Choose MU Nursing?

Nationwide Shortage of RN's

Nursing is a field that is projected to grow at astounding rates over the next decade. National projections indicate a shortage of about 450,000 RNs by 2012. According to the North Carolina State Board of Nursing, the state of North Carolina is expected to have a shortage of nurses in excess of 32,000 by the year 2020.

The Methodist University Nursing Program will meet this challenge by preparing you for a rewarding career as a health care professional.

The BSN Advantage

Earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) immediately opens the gateway to an advanced degree in medicine as a physician (MD) or physician assistant (PA) and in nursing as a nurse practitioner (NP), nurse anesthetist (CRNA), nurse leader, or nurse educator. Recognition, merit based salary increases, clinical ladder progression, and promotions in most hospitals rely on the completion of a BSN.
