Mini-Guide to Online Nursing Degrees
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) June 16, 2008
In time for National Nursing Assistants Week, which runs from June 12-18, eLearners.com, a web resource of EducationDynamics that connects prospective students with online learning providers, has launched a "Mini-Guide to Online Nursing Degrees" to provide information about what a career in nursing involves and how to pursue this profession online. Some of the degree highlights include online RN programs and an RN to BSN online degree.
More than 2.5 million direct care workers in the United States help care for the elderly and people in need of long- and short-term medical attention. Despite the sluggish economy, the number of nursing assistants continues to rise due to the aging baby boomers population and more patients moving out of hospitals into nursing care facilities. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor expects jobs to grow by 28 percent between 2006 and 2016 for nursing, psychiatric, and home health aides.
"Practically every day we're hearing new reports about the poor job market, but one industry that will continue to stay strong is in the healthcare industry, especially nursing assistants," said Terrence Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer for eLearners.com. "The demand for these professionals will only accelerate and, in turn, the need to acquire the appropriate skills through education will grow. Online education will be a popular and convenient way to pursue that education."
To help answer the many questions people have about studying online and online nursing schools, eLearners.com created the "Mini-Guide to Online Nursing Degrees." The guide answers questions such as:
- Is an online nursing degree right for me?
- What online nursing courses will I need to take?
- What will I learn in an online nursing degree?
- What careers in nursing will I be ready for?
eLearners.com also offers a comprehensive database of programs and information for students to determine if attending an online college is right for them, including the eLearners Advisor, an assessment that measures online learning compatibility with the prospective online learner. In addition, with the current credit crunch, eLearners.com's Student Loans and Financial Aid Center can help students find financial support in paying for college, including the Debt-Free College Guide and online scholarships with more than $14 billion in financial aid.
