Nursing There has never been a better time to be a nurse. Did you know that by the year 2020, there will be an estimated shortage of 800,000 nurses? With the world population living longer and needing more care, the healthcare field is one of the best places to get a job and will likely stay that way for many years to come.

In addition, nursing is a highly regarded profession. A Gallup Poll announced that the public voted nurses number one for “honesty and ethical standards of various professions.”

Sandhills offers Associate Degree Nursing, a diploma in Practical Nursing, and a Nursing Assistant program.
