Why Go to College?

A nursing education could mean the difference between a minimum-wage job and a career that pays well and has lots of opportunities.

  • On average, a person who goes to college earns 25% more than a person who does not
  • The more education you have, the more jobs you’ll have to choose from.
  • In college you’ll gain knowledge and skills that you will use for the rest of your life
  • College puts you in a better position to help your family and your community

The time to start to think about college is now. The more time you give yourself to plan for college, the better. The effort you put in to planning will definitely pay off. We suggest you start by ninth or tenth grade or even sooner.
