Registered Nurse

PictureAbout the Profession 

Registered nurses work in a variety of settings including hospitals, extended care facilities, schools, clinics, community centers, military facilities, or home care. RNs are responsible for monitoring and recording patient symptoms and health, administering medications, performing and analyzing diagnostic tests, and operating medical equipment. They communicate and discuss treatment options with patients and the health care team, and educate patients on the management of their injury or illness.  

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) curriculum delivers thorough professional nursing instruction that culminates with candidates being eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN. The core curriculum in any accredited bachelor’s degree in nursing program includes the study of adult, maternal, newborn, and pediatric professional nursing. Mental health, gerontological, and community health nursing is also covered in most programs. The bachelor’s degree in nursing is a gateway to further higher education in the form of a Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) or a doctoral degree.
