College Degree Finder

Even though Arizona’s economy isn’t what it used to be, the good news is that the health care industry in Arizona is vibrant and strong. Hospitals, medical clinical and health care facilities speckle the landscape and more are being built every year. As the demand for healthcare services grows so does the need for qualified nurses. Registered nurses in particular are in high demand in Arizona due to nursing shortages. In fact, a recent study showed that the state will need an additional 50,000 registered nurses over the next decade to meet the state’s health care needs.
