My Career as a...

Annual Salary: 65,450 per year

Job Description: The nursing profession, like healthcare in general, is in a state of change. The profession of nursing is becoming increasingly complex as patient care is moving out of hospitals and into outpatient and primary care settings. For years, the role of nurses has been evolving from a bedside caregiver to a specialized member of an interdisciplinary medical team.

Job Outlook: According to national data published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment for nurses is expected to increase 26% by 2020, which is much faster than the average occupation. The BLS further states that registered nurses with at least a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) are expected to have the best job opportunities. Prospective students are encouraged to conduct independent research to determine actual job growth rates, which vary according to location, education and experience.

Cluster: Health Science

Work Schedule: Is it generally 4 days on, 3 off? Is there much flexibility or is it pre-determined and rotating?

Work Enviroment: Your work enviroment plays a large role in the ability to provide quality care. The atmosphere of a facility is critically important. It impacts everything from the safety of patients and their caregivers to job satisfaction. Studies consistently show how work environment issues, such as nurse staffing, are linked with patient outcomes, length of stay, and chance of death. ANA supports a healthy work environment for all nurses and patients.

Something Interesting: Hospital nurses form the largest group of nurses. Most are staff nurses, who provide bedside nursing care and carry out medical regimens. They also may supervise licensed practical nurses and nursing aides. Hospital nurses usually are assigned to one area, such as surgery, maternity, pediatrics, orthopedics, emergency, mental health, intensive care, or treatment of cancer patients. Some may rotate among departments. Office nurses care for outpatients in physicians' offices, clinics, surgical centers, and emergency medical centers. They prepare patients for and assist with examinations, administer injections and medications, dress wounds and incisions, assist with minor surgery, and maintain records. Some also perform routine laboratory and office work.
