Nursing Careers

Registered nurses (RNs) treat, educate and counsel patients in hospitals, homes and anywhere nursing care is needed. An array of career opportunities, including leadership and community nursing, are available to RNs who hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.

BSN-trained nurses in high demand

The Institute of Medicine has published a ground-breaking report that calls for an 80-percent increase in the number of nurses with baccalaureate degrees by 2020. The Future of Nursing report also recommends RNs should be free of scope-of-practice barriers and play a key role in the re-shaping of the U.S. health care system. What does this mean to you? Enormous career opportunities.
