List of Accredited Nursing Schools in Arizona

The health care sector in the state of Arizona is in great shape, even if the rest of the economy is not as strong, at least for now. Hospitals, medical clinics and other health institutions are abundant in the state and many more are opened each year. With that comes demand for fresh and established nursing professional from all corners of the nursing practice spectrum. RNs are said to be one of the nursing professionals with the best prospects over here, due to shortages as described in this study.  The same study, states that, due to demand and retiring licensed registered nurses, there will be a job growth of 20% in the next decade for RNs in Arizona.
