Nursing Job Overview
Nursing jobs are the backbone of the healthcare labor force. Nurses provide bedside care; observe and record vital signs and other health metrics; aid in care planning; and communicate with other clinicians, patients and families.
Nursing careers include certified nursing assistant (CNA), licensed practical nurse (LPN), registered nurse (RN), nursing supervisor, nurse manager, director of nursing and chief nursing officer.
Educational requirements for careers in nursing vary widely. Nursing assistants may earn a certificate in a year or less; nursing-school faculty positions can require a PhD, entailing eight or more years of study. Training for almost all nursing job opportunities includes a mix of clinical and classroom experience.
Additional training is often required for nurses who choose clinical specialties like pediatrics, diabetes, oncology or critical care.
