Career Opportunities - The possibilities are endless!

The U. S. health care system is continuously changing and evolving, more quickly than at any point in history, and the nursing profession is the largest segment of the nation’s health care workforce.  Nurses should be full partners with physicians and other health care professionals, in designing health care in the United States. This requires a highly educated nursing workforce, prepared at the baccalaureate degree level, and ready to achieve higher levels of education.

Feedback from employers indicates that our graduates are ready to face the challenges of the nursing profession. We repeated hear statements such as, "It takes half the time to orient a Coe nursing graduate than most other nursing graduates we hire," and "Coe graduates are highly professional, and ready to achieve greater levels of responsibility."

Coe nursing graduates are highly sought after for employment. Graduates may work in the following:

  • Staff Nurse (Medical/Surgical, Pediatrics, Mental Health, Obstetrics, Emergency, ICU and more)
  • Employee Health Nurse
  • School Nurse
  • Hospice Nurse
  • Parish Nurse
  • Nurse Geneticist
  • Nurse Manager
  • Research Nurse
  • Infection Control Nurse
  • Nurse Educator

Many Coe graduates continue their education to become Nurse Practitioners, Researchers, and Professors.
