UA nursing student Marlena Maish has been working hard for the past two years to complete her bachelor's degree. With just three semesters left until graduation, she is looking forward to pursuing a career in the health profession.
Fortunately for Maish, a career in nursing is in high demand, since several studies have indicated that there has been a significant decrease in the number of students enrolled in nursing programs around the country.
