Nursing students can get into a nursing program online for the first time in 2020.
In a survey of nursing students, the American Nurses Association (ANA) found that nursing students have made significant strides in becoming certified and have gained valuable experience in caring for patients.
According to the study, about one in five students have taken online nursing classes, and about one-third of nursing student applicants are now certified.
The survey found that more than 40 percent of applicants for a nurse job were female.
In a study conducted in 2018, the National Association of Nurse Midwives (NANMW) found about 18 percent of the U.S. population had a nurse, and more than 30 percent of nurses were women.
The National Association for College Admission Counseling and Career Development (NCACAD) released a report on Wednesday that found that women make up only 17 percent of nursing candidates, while women make 80 percent of career counselors and 65 percent of admissions counselors.
The NACAD also found that the number of nursing jobs in the U, specifically nursing and midwifery, has dropped by nearly 25 percent since 2000.
More: The survey also found women had the lowest median income among nursing applicants and the highest median household income among applicants.
