The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at Campbell University, pending SACSCOC approval, is designed to provide students with the training and education necessary to enter the workforce as a registered nurse. The College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences is dedicated to helping students become the best healthcare professionals they can be by offering interprofessional education opportunities, top of the line training facilities, and first-hand experience with rural healthcare needs.
Between 2010 and 2020, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects registered nurse employment growth of 26 percent, in large part to higher healthcare demand from aging Baby Boomers. The number of Registered Nurses per one hundred thousand population is calculated using estimates from the Census Bureau in 2011. The number of RNs to 100,000 in NC is 945 with the U.S. average at 874. The data for the bordering states includes: Georgia (665), Tennessee (946), Virginia (768) and South Carolina (911). Thus the potential job market includes a portion of the Southeast Region of the U.S.
