The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that demand for nurses will grow “much faster than average” in the next decade. Great job prospects and nearly unlimited opportunities for advancement await as you progress through your nursing career and continue your education. In fact, it’s not uncommon for highly-skilled nurses with advanced degrees to make six-figure salaries!

Take your first step at Wor-Wic. We offer two paths for those who want to become nurses:
  • a certificate (CPN) program for those who wish to become licensed practical nurses (LPNs); and
  • ‚Äčan associate degree program (ADN) for those who want to become registered nurses (RNs).

While graduates from both programs are prepared to practice right away (after fulfilling licensure requirements), ADN graduates can also take advantage of our connections with the Maryland RN-to-BSN program to transfer directly into any University of Maryland nursing school and earn a bachelor’s degree.

Both our CPN and ADN nursing programs are approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing.
