How It Works
Nursing.org generates revenue by advertising nursing degrees and certifications at certain schools, which pay us for student referrals. We may receive compensation when site visitors use our program search tool or interact with advertisements located throughout the site.
Because we value transparency, we have taken measures to minimize confusion for readers. Our advertisements are clearly and unambiguously labeled as such so that visitors can differentiate them from our unbiased editorial content. Visitors may use advertisements to request more information about a school or degree, but this is not needed to use the site, and all of our content is free for anyone to access.
Millions of medical patients benefit from nursing care every day. Nurses perform dozens of vital tasks in healthcare settings, from dressing wounds and diagnosing conditions to meeting with patients and their families to discuss long-term treatment plans. We are driven by stories of nurses changing lives and the patients their work impacts.

Why was this site formed?
We created Nursing.org in response to the growing demand for nurses. The U.S. is projected to experience a nurse shortage tied to the aging baby boomer generation. It is more important than ever to encourage individuals to consider a career in nursing so that we can adequately address our country's healthcare needs. However, with all its specializations, career paths, and acronyms (RN, LPN, ADN, DNP, etc.), the field can be daunting to navigate. We hope to combat this by providing well-researched resources about nursing education and careers. We also want to establish a community where nurses can support one another.
What resources do you provide for nurses?
Current and prospective nurses alike will find many useful resources on our site. For students, we break down nursing degrees at the associate, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels, discussing what each entails and what jobs graduates are qualified for. In addition, we provide information on online degree programs -- including bridge programs -- that offer greater flexibility for students juggling work or family obligations. Financial aid guides, a robust scholarship database, career information, and nursing program guides organized by state can also be found on Nursing.org. Something missing? Please feel free to send in content suggestions here.
