Advance your Career in Nursing
Since you're already an RN, you know that a career in nursing offers continual growth and advancement. A bachelor's degree is generally required for growth into higher-level nursing positions, and a master's degree is required for some. Some opportunities for upward mobility are:
- Advanced Practice Nursing Role—Clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, nurse-midwives, and nurse practitioners
- Education Role - Teach in a college, university, or hospital setting
- Administrative Role —Manage a department or clinical specialty area
- Consulting Role
- Research Role
