Nursing Professions

The field of nursing can be very rewarding, but it may not be right for everyone. Read on to learn whether a career in nursing is right for you and to find out about the education you need to find a job.

Inside Nursing

Nursing is a dynamic field that offers career opportunities at many levels. A diploma that can be completed in under a year will let someone become a certified nursing assistant (CNA), while some nurses earn multiple degrees in order to become highly specialized nurse practitioners. In addition to earning a diploma or degree, individuals need to satisfy state certification and licensure requirements in order to work in the nursing field. For example, registered nurses (RNs) must pass the NCLEX-RN exam in order to earn their credential.

Whether you'd like to begin as a CNA or earn a bachelor's degree and become an RN, Study.com has all the information you need to make your career and education decisions.
