Public and private universities are distinguished by the ways they are funded. Public colleges are typically financed by state governments, while private universities are funded mainly by private investments and donations. For this reason, the cost of education in private colleges and universities is relatively higher than their state-run counterparts. Private institutions must cover expenses by charging higher tuition rates and other academic fees, while governments partially subsidize public school operating costs like faculty salaries and research facilities.

Idaho’s educational system is supported by strong public colleges and universities that continually supply the workforce with highly prepared workers. These graduates include nurses who serve the health needs of a large and growing population. Idaho’s government provides funding and support for many public colleges and universities across the state, including community colleges, as part of its social investment.

The nursing profession offers a variety of opportunities, ranging from nursing assistants to advanced practice registered nurses. In Idaho, all levels of the nursing profession are currently experiencing robust growth. The United States Department of Health and Human Services projects a 30% deficit in the number of nurses needed in the state by 2020.
