Curricula Built for Relevance

King University seeks to educate students in an academically rigorous setting that integrates Christian faith, scholarship, service, and professional advancement. Through our degree programs, our graduates go on to lead meaningful lives of achievement.

Build a Career as a Healer

Nurses are in high demand across the country. An aging population, a generation of nurses going into retirement and a shortage of physicians have resulted in a need for both skilled nurses, as well as nurse leaders such as nurse educators and nurse practitioners. With this demand comes good salaries at every level of nursing, but particularly for nursing professionals with higher levels of education. For instance, a licensed practical nurse makes an average of $48,0701 a year, but a registered nurse makes almost $30,000 more than that.

Average Annual Salaries for Nursing Careers

  1. Registered Nurse $77,6002
  2. Clinical Nurse Manager $86,9023
  3. Nursing Director $156,1744
  4. Nurse Educator $103, 1605
