State Approved RN Schools in Arizona

Find accredited registered nursing programs to complete RN pre-licensure requirements

Being a nurse is a very rewarding and positive job. It really is not simply a job, it is a mission to serve and care for those who cannot care for themselves. Arizona is the perfect place to study and prepare for a nursing career since there are many training courses and schools you can attend to become a registered nurse. Arizona has a strong job market for licensed nurses and many different employment opportunities can be found.

The average RN salary in Arizona is $78,260 per year, or $38 per hour, depending on the field chosen and on their level of training. For example a nurse with a Bachelor Degree will make more and be better qualified than a nurse with an Associates Degree. When you are in charge of a group of nurses or assist a doctor in his private practice you can usually expect to earn more. Nursing is a career dedicated to serving others and if you enjoy that type of work then being a nurse can be a very suitable career.

Arizona is very spread out and its population is heavily concentrated in a few major cities. Today many sick and elderly people retire to live in Arizona and enjoy the warm dessert weather and the relatively clean air. Reduced humidity is recommended for people with breathing diseases like chronic asthma and bronchitis. Nurses with training in ambulatory care or adult care are in great demand to service these types of patients.

There are many state and federal financial assistance programs in place to provide funding for the expansion of health care services in rural areas of Arizona and on Native American reservations. These programs usually include a budget for hiring several nurses to staff local hospitals and health clinics. There is demand for a variety of nursing specialties, such as pediatric nurses, general nurses, emergency nurses, orthopedic nurses and so forth. Specialties dealing with children and the elderly are probably the most in-demand because of the large population of such patients.

In the past year the demand for registered nurses in the state of Arizona has increased by 14% and continues to rise. The need for nurses in Arizona will continue to increase as long as the elderly population and the population in general keeps growing. New health assistant programs open frequently in an effort to improve health conditions in the rural parts of Arizona and the Native American reservations. Now is a good time to start a registered nursing career in Arizona and serve the state’s population.
