There is a growing demand for nurses due to an increase in the aging population, and more people being admitted to long-term care facilities and outpatient care centers as a result of the financial pressure on hospitals to discharge patient as soon as possible. Job growth is also expected to grow in facilities that provide long-term rehabilitation for stroke, head injury patients and Alzheimer’s diseases.
Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026. Registered nurses with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing will have better job prospects than those without one.
Nurses provide and coordinate patient care, educate and provide advice on a patient’s medical condition and provide emotional support to patients and their families. They help record patient’s medical histories and symptoms, observe patient’s symptoms, set up plans for patient care or contribute to existing ones and consult with doctors and health providers.
Nurses also operate medical equipment, perform diagnostic testing and analyze results.
Some registered nurses don’t work directly with patients. Instead they may work as nurse educators, healthcare consultants, researchers or hospital administrative.
Nurses spend a lot of their time on their feet. Their jobs require that they be able to lift and move patients, so they are vulnerable to back injury. Most nurses spend most of their time with patients. This may put them in contact with people who have infectious disease, and they may also frequently come in contact with hazardous substances. Registered nurses are required to follow strict, standardized guidelines to guard against diseases and other dangers.
Nurses may work long shifts of up to 24 hours and may be required to work weekends, nights, and holidays. They may also be required to be on call.
There are three types of educational options for applicants interested in a career in nursing: a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), an associate’s degree in Nursing (AND), or a diploma from an approved nursing program. Clinical nurse specialists must earn a master’s degree in nursing and typically 1 or more years of work or related experience. CNS’s who conduct research will need a doctorate.
Though all options will cover courses such as anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, psychology, and other social and behavioral sciences, A bachelor’s degree program will extend into the physical and social sciences, leadership, communication and critical thinking. They also offer more clinical experience in nonhospital setting. A bachelor’s degree or higher is usually required for administrative, teaching, research or consulting positions.
All registered nurses must become licensed to practice in their chosen state. Additional certification may be required for nurses working in a specialized field, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), basic life support, and advanced cardiac life support
The median annual wage for registered nurses is $70,000, with the lowest 10 percent earning less than $48,690, and the highest earning more than $104,100.
Along with the education and licenses needed to practice, nurses must also have critical thinking skills, must be detail-oriented and have high organizational skills.
Because nursing involves constant direct care with patients and their families, nurses require compassion, emotional stability as they must cope with human suffering, emergencies, and other emergencies, communication skills, and physical stamina.
