Nicknamed The Queen City, Cincinnati has a growing medical community that stands to benefit from our accelerated nursing school graduates. As the local health care industry continues to move at a faster pace than Greater Cincinnati’s overall economy, the employment gap in area hospitals and health care facilities continues to widen.
Therefore, by attending our ABSN program, you will have a variety of job opportunities to pursue after graduating from our program. According to a 2015 study by the Center for Economic Analysis and Development at the Haile/US Bank College of Business at Northern Kentucky University, Cincinnati has more health care jobs than local graduates can fill.
Between now and 2020, the city of Cincinnati anticipates:
- Approximately 35,000 new health care jobs to accommodate growth.
- Approximately 16,528 health care job openings because of attrition, etc.
- Positions for registered nurses to be among the top job openings.
In addition to its thriving health care industry, Cincinnati is home to nine Fortune 500 companies, including Macy’s, Fifth Third Bancorp, and P&G. In fact, the city has more Fortune 500 companies per capita than Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago, making it a prime spot for finding a job in various fields.
