Nursing degrees are up.
But the American Nurses Association says the nursing degree has a future and will continue growing in the U.K., Germany and other countries.
The U.N. has warned that if the U,S.
doesn’t move quickly to get the UNAF’s nurses union on board, there will be consequences for other countries that may be following suit.
The American Nursers Association, which represents more than 15,000 nurses in the United States, says nursing degrees will rise by nearly 2% to $70,000 this year, which is up from $66,000 in 2016.
Its executive director, Lori Sohn, said nurses are getting more advanced training in all areas of nursing, including clinical nursing.
“We have a growing number of nurses who are working in the clinical setting, but they’re also training in the nursing environment,” Sohn said.
“And that’s what makes it even more exciting.”
The U.NAF, which has a membership of about 6 million, says the nurses union will continue lobbying for a “fair and equal” nursing degree system that encourages nursing and other professions to work together.
A recent study by the International Labor Organization showed nurses earned less than non-nurses in the same field.
But the UVA Health System, a large U.
Va. nursing-home company, said the UOA is misleading the public by claiming the nurses’ unions want to “destroy” the nursing profession.
The union wants the UnaF to include a national certification process for nurses in its contract negotiations.
UVA Health, which also operates nursing homes in Maryland and Tennessee, also said it supports a national credentialing process for nursing jobs.
