Statistics continue to show that more and more employers prefer hiring nurses with bachelor's or master's nursing degrees. Recently, out of six employment ads by Med Pro Staffing and eight job ads by St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, every single one called for a bachelor's degree. In addition, salary data reveals that nurses with advanced degrees make at least 70% more than nurses without advanced degrees.

A good place to earn your bachelor's degree is a four-year university or college. Bachelor's degree programs at these schools are based on four years of fulltime study. Sometimes, studying during the summer can shorten the process. After completing a bachelor's degree, you can continue on to your master's degree. It takes roughly two years of fulltime study to complete the master's degree requirements.

Four-year universities and colleges can be public or private. Public universities are mostly supported by state funds. As a result, tuition is usually cheaper than in private universities. Private universities get some funds from donations but frequently depend on tuition for most of their budget. Some people assign a prestige to private universities over public; however, that view is being challenged with the increasingly fine selection of public universities available.

Arizona has both public and private four-year schools to choose from. Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona College in Mesa, Chamberlain College of Nursing in Phoenix, and the University of Arizona in Tucson are just a few of the institutions that offer accredited nursing programs.

The following four-year Arizona nursing schools can assist you in achieving your degree for success.
