Liberty’s Online Nursing Degrees
As a nurse, you play a critical role in people’s lives when they are at their most vulnerable. Nursing schools are turning away qualified applicants because there aren’t enough nurse educators, and patient loads — that could be shared by qualified nurse practitioners — are overwhelming physicians. You can make the difference. At Liberty University, we know you care about your patients and their families. You believe in them. That’s why we’re committed to helping you meet the growing need for advanced practice nurses and shape the future of healthcare.
And an advanced degree can train you in leadership, health policy, system improvement, and other critical competencies. Your bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree in nursing will help you expand your nursing expertise as well as your influence over patients and policies. And, at Liberty, they’re available 100% online.
Liberty’s academically excellent, flexible, and affordable nursing degree programs make it possible for busy nursing professionals like you to earn your degree while staying connected to your family, community, and career. Your nursing degree from Liberty University will equip you to reach new professional heights and shape a better world by championing what matters to you. And that’s what matters to us.
