The U.S. Department of Labor estimated that the field of nursing would experience a job growth of 16 percent between 2014 and 2024, which created a need for qualified nurses. This need combined with the need for nurses with the knowledge to effectively treat the health challenges of today caused the Institute of Medicine to release a report recommending that the proportion of nurses with baccalaureate and advance nursing degrees increase to 80 percent by 2020.
So how do you increase your chances of being accepted into nursing school?
