This section of our website is for anyone wanting more information on nursing careers: middle and high school students, guidance counselors, and adults considering a career change.
Registered Nurses often function as part of the healthcare team, providing direct patient care, education, and advocacy for patients and their families. They use observation and assessment skills to support nursing diagnoses, which help to create a plan of care for patients. They care for ill patients, promote health and wellness and disease prevention. But not all nurses provide bedside care. They may become nursing educators, researchers, administrators, legal consultants, or work in a wide variety of positions. Currently there are over three million Registered Nurses in America and demand is expected to grow at a rate of 19% by 2022.
Practicing as a Nurse is a rewarding and fulfilling career. We invite you to download and view the powerpoint presentation below for more details.
