Career Options

Nursing is a profession concerned with the total health care of the individual and the family. This total care includes the physical, psychological, sociocultural and environmental problems as they relate to daily life. Nurses practice in homes, schools, clinics, hospitals, and other settings where people are in need of health care services. The nursing profession believes in preventing illness, caring for those who are acutely ill, and helping people with long-term rehabilitative problems live in the healthiest way possible. Nursing is both a science and an art. It has its foundation in biophysical and behavioral humanistic sciences as well in specific practice skills and techniques.

Nurses are in great demand throughout the country and are needed in such settings as acute care hospitals, community health agencies, outreach programs, public schools, health maintenance organizations, and clinics which serve disadvantaged, ethnically diverse, and rural populations. Career opportunities are particularly good right now for bilingual and/or bicultural persons, and men.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Registered Nurse occupation will show the largest job growth out of any other occupation from 2008 to 2018.
