ADN Program Details
Registered Nurses (R.N.'s) work to promote health, prevent disease, and help patients cope with illness. Nursing offers a wider variety of opportunities today than ever before-from bedside practice to president or top administrator of a healthcare organization. You can be a clinical specialist, nurse practitioner, nurse educator, emergency care specialist, geriatric, pediatric or maternity specialist, and much more. Nurses work with physicians during treatments and examinations, observe, assess, and record symptoms, responses, and progress; administer medications; and assist in convalescence and rehabilitation of patients.
Registered Nurses find employment in a wide variety of work environments, such as nursing homes, schools, doctor's offices, businesses, and with various health service organizations. You may, of course, work in a community hospital or private clinic, but today's nurses are also found working for the U.S. military, for Veteran's Administration Medical Centers, and anywhere people need health care services locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally. You may choose to work in a major city, a small town, or even an isolated rural area where you may be people's only source of medical care and information. Opportunities exist almost everywhere!
