RN Jobs

Registered Nurse Job Overview

Registered nurses are medical professionals who provide care in a variety of settings, including emergency rooms, doctors' offices, and clinical facilities. They work with patients daily, treating their acute injuries, as well as managing chronic conditions. Nurses provide integral support for doctors in administering treatments in offices and hospitals and in assisting with billing and patient instruction for follow-up visits and after care. This is a demanding but rewarding career for those who want to dedicate their lives to helping others at a time when they need it most.

Registered Nurse Job Education Requirements

An associate's degree, bachelor's degree or diploma from an accredited program, as well as successful completion of several licensing exams, is necessary to become a registered nurse. State healthcare laws may also require candidates to log an amount of hours in a hospital or other healthcare center under the supervision of fully licensed nurses. These hours help refine skill sets and test book knowledge with real-world application of techniques. Registered nurses may also need to regularly attend several continuing education courses to keep up with the latest approved medical procedures.

Registered Nurse Job Market

The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the job market for registered general nurses, to grow "faster than average" compared to other industries. An aging population in the United States and an increase in emergency room care are just some of the contributing factors for this increased demand. Federal research indicates that 61 percent of all registered nurses work in hospital settings, as of the latest reporting year. In total, the U.S. healthcare industry employs more than 2.7 million RNs, as of 2013.

Nurses employed by facilities that don't give 24-hour care are more likely to work full-time than those working in emergency rooms or hospitals with round-the-clock patients. The latest data from the Office of Occupational Statistics and Employment Projections shows that one in five nurses works part-time.

Registered Nurse Job Salary Information

As of 2013, the mean annual wage for registered nurses is $68,910 with a mean hourly wage of $33.13. Nurses working in general medical and surgical hospitals earned the highest annual mean wages compared to all other groups at $70,590. These locations also use the highest percentage of registered nurses in the country -- over 29 percent. Nursing care facilities employed the lowest percentage of registered nurses at just over 8 percent.
