Qualified nurses are in high demand. According to the Department of Labor, the United States will need one million new nurses by 2012, and registered nursing is at the top of the Labor Department's list for job growth. Hospitals are increasingly looking for more highly educated nurses, such as those who have a bachelor of science in nursing (B.S.N.) degree.
