Alumni Nurses Credit Liberal Arts Education for Successful Careers

By the year 2020, it is estimated that there will be a shortage of 800,000 nurses. With people living longer and needing more care, the healthcare field is one industry that seems to be growing, even despite the slow economy.

They believe they…
