Dean Wurmser: Nursing Careers More Meaningful Than Ever

nursing careers talk with Teri Wurmser and Steve Adubato

Nursing careers are more meaningful and in-demand than ever, according to Teri Wurmser, Ph.D., dean of the Georgian Court-Hackensack Meridian Health School of Nursing. Her comments came during a recent interview with thought leader and public affairs TV host Steve Adubato. The two talked about the pandemic, the profession, and the future of nursing.

The COVID-19 crisis is likely to motivate new nursing talent, said Dean Wurmser, who added that she’s never been prouder to be a nurse. She also talked about GCU’s new 14-month accelerated bachelor’s degree in nursing (A.B.S.N.). The program, meant for people who already have an undergraduate degree and want to shift into nursing careers, begins classes in January 2021.

“People are looking for a profession that is really meaningful to them,” Dean Wurmser said. “We are seeing people from other careers who are not feeling fulfilled coming into nursing programs. I think the future is very bright for nurses.”
