North Dakota Nursing Schools and Programs

North Dakota has legendary experiences to explore unlimited outdoor activities. The heritage and history of the authentic West fills the state of North Dakota. There is an abundance of opportunities to enjoy many heritage festivals, wagon train rides, and visit historic ranches. There is world-class fishing and mountain biking through the majestic beauty of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. There is hiking along the Missouri River which is part of the adventurers of Lewis and Clark. The spirit of legends roamed North Dakota, such as America's "Conservation President" Theodore Roosevelt, General George Armstrong Custer, or the Indian Chief Sitting Bull.

North Dakota is a low populated, rural state and the opportunities for nursing school are available at many community colleges and universities. North Dakota works hard to educate and staff nurses to address the needs of rural areas. Although North Dakota’s nursing shortage is not as high as other states, they still have a plan to decrease the shortage they do have now. The plan is dealing with nurse retention, scholarships for new nurses, staffing levels, nurse-patient ratios, and salary compensation. North Dakota has great nursing programs and is readily available to help you with your nursing education goals!
