Schools offering Nursing in Connecticut

The small state of Connecticut was home to more than 3.5 million people in 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. A high number of these have a postsecondary education, counting residents aged 25 and over. The U.S. average for persons holding bachelor's degrees or higher was 27.5 percent in 2009, but in Connecticut that number reached 35.1 percent, suggesting the importance of education in a competitive job market.

From the placid coast of Long Island Sound to the expanses of woodland upstate, Connecticut has no shortage of natural views and great locations for hiking, biking and photography. More than two-thirds of state residents make their homes in thriving metropolitan cities like Hartford, Stamford and New Haven. Aspiring nurses shouldn't hesitate to look into campus-based and online nursing schools in Connecticut.
