What to Look for in a Nursing School
When you’re looking for a nursing program, you want more than a school that will just hand you a degree—you want to know that you’re making a solid investment in your future and that the effort you’re putting in will pay off in a rewarding career. Here’s what you should look for.
Look for a Nursing Program With Lots of Career Options
Not everybody starts in the same place. When you’re looking for a good nursing school, you’ll want to look for one that has an option that’s right for you. At Cambridge, we offer an Associate of Science Nursing (ASN) program for people who are just starting out in the nursing field. We also offer an RN to BSN program for registered nurses who are already working and would like to increase their job prospects by obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Whichever program you choose, you’ll gain the education and skills needed to increase your career opportunities within healthcare organizations.
Three Additional Considerations
1. Great Nursing Faculty and Staff
You’ll also want to look for great faculty and staff at your nursing school. Make sure that you’ll be supported by a team of knowledgeable professionals who know the field, but who also know the best ways to teach in the classroom.
At Cambridge, each of our school campus locations offers a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment for you to learn from qualified instructors and other experienced professionals in the nursing field. These people will work with you in our classrooms and at clinic healthcare facilities.
2. Flexible Online Options
At Cambridge, we understand the need for a balance between your education and your life. For our RN to BSN program, we’ve created an online curriculum and schedule that offers the education and training you need to succeed in your career. It’s designed so that you can keep working while you study for your next career move.
3. Modern Facilities
Modern facilities are also key. You’ll want to look for a school that trains you in classrooms that prepare you for work in the real world, with state-of-the-art technology and the latest health care tools. Our Altamonte Springs Campus housed in a 10,700 square foot facility, and our Delray Beach campus offers multiple classrooms, advanced healthcare technology, and extensive learning and collaboration opportunities.
