Overview

In the tradition of Jane Addams, a Rockford University alumna and Nobel Peace Prize winner, nursing students are challenged to think critically, act compassionately, and engage with their wider community. They touch people’s lives inside and outside of the classroom with community-based learning projects.

If you are an individual with strong abilities in the sciences and the desire to have an impact on the health of our communities in new and creative ways, the Nursing program of Rockford University might be just what you are looking for.

Nursing Careers and Internships

Career opportunities for nurses continue to expand exponentially. The combination of the aging of the U.S. population and the shortage of skilled nurses with advanced education has resulted in an increased demand for nurses. As nurses have moved to the front lines of health care delivery it has resulted in expanded career prospects. With a 4-year degree in nursing, you’ll have one of the highest starting salaries, in any field, and with more education, your earning potential can exceed $100,000 per year.

A career in nursing is challenging and dynamic. You might choose to work in a hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation center, or other extended-care facilities. You might work with a private practice physician, in a community health agency, a federal nursing agency, in industry and business, at a school, or in the military. Across your career, if you desire, you will have the opportunity to work with different populations of clients and in different settings.
