Schools offering Nursing in Maine

The Pine Tree State covers 33,215 square miles and is relatively rural--the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that in 2010, 1.3 million people lived in its 16 counties. The major industries are focused on profiting from the ocean and vast forestland; however, graduates of online nursing schools in Maine may also find rewarding career opportunities in health care.
