Embark on a new rewarding career path
Registered nurses play a key role in patient care. RNs are a crucial connection between patients and doctors, not only providing support in administering medication, but serving as a patient’s advocate and understanding their difficulties and concerns.
As a registered nurse your scope of practice can potentially cover much more than the heart and lungs. Many registered nurses, especially those who have earned a bachelor’s degree, can gain experience and specialize in areas such as pediatrics, neonatal/NICU, med/surgical (OR), oncology, and many more.
Your first step to becoming an RN is earning the education you need to sit for the NCLEX-RN, pass the Board of Nursing requirements in your state and become qualified for your first entry-level job as an RN.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of registered nurses is expected to rise 7% from 2019-2029, faster than cardiovascular technicians/technologists and the average across all U.S. occupations.*
If you’re considering changing your career path to nursing, now is a good time to begin your journey. We are here to help you become as qualified as possible for your first entry-level job as an RN.
