Department of Nursing



There has never been a better time to be a nurse. Not only do nurses have the opportunity to touch lives every day, they are at the forefront of an exciting health care revolution. In this fast-paced, technologically driven world, patients rely on nurses to make sense of our complex health care system. The nurse is the primary conduit between the patient and medicine, providing care, comfort and compassion.

What Can I Do with My Degree?

A career in nursing has endless possibilities, allowing you the flexibility to choose a specialty that fits your interests and abilities. From birth to death, nurses provide critical support and care to people across the lifespan. Nursing specialties include pediatrics, geriatrics, emergency care, surgical nursing and more. Other nurses work outside of a hospital or doctor's office, such as forensic nurses, legal nurse consultants, clinical researchers and school nurses. The career outlook for nurses has never been better. With a nationwide nursing shortage and an aging population, qualified nurses have their choice of well-paying jobs. There are currently over 100,000 vacant nursing positions in the U.S., and that number is predicted to grow. Whether you're just out of high school, thinking of changing careers or a practicing nurse looking to complete your degree, Robert Morris University can prepare you for a successful nursing career today and leave you poised for the demands of tomorrow.
