Chamberlain Announces Charlotte, North Carolina Campus
The Charlotte campus will offer a three-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program and is now accepting applications for admission to classes that begin on Monday, Jan. 4.
A Growing Need for Nurses in North Carolina
Multiple factors are having an impact on North Carolina’s growing need for nurses in the state, where it is estimated that there will be a shortage of 20,000 nurses by 2030.
The elderly population will double within the next five years, creating demand for highly skilled nurses to provide care across an increasingly wide spectrum of healthcare settings.
Concurrently, the average age of the North Carolina nurse is rising, with 24 percent of the workforce expected to retire within 10 years. The healthcare sector is hiring to fill these jobs, making nursing and other healthcare roles some of North Carolina’s fastest-growing occupations.
Open House Information
Open houses for prospective students will be held at the new Charlotte campus, 2015 Ayrsley Town Blvd., on Monday, October 26, and Friday, October 30, from 4–7 p.m. For more information about Chamberlain College of Nursing’s Charlotte campus or to RSVP.
