Nurse Journal: Social Community for Nurses Worldwide
Description of Organizations Services:
In the years to come, our country is projected to experience a shortage of nurses that will only be aggravated by the aging Baby Boomer generation. Considering nurses' contributions to the entire medical industry, the impact would degrade our society's health at large. It's increasingly more important than ever to encourage individuals to pursue or advance their careers in nursing.

However, the variety of degree and certificate options, and all the acronyms that come with them can make the nursing field difficult to navigate. In order to help alleviate the confusion, the team at curated a streamlined series of guides breaking down degree types, bachelor's program requirements, and flexible degree options.
