I chose to write my paper on registered nurses because I am currently in my first year of nursing school at Bryant & Stratton. After graduation I hope to obtain a position as a registered nurse in a hospital.
Nurses have numerous job responsibilities and tasks depending on where they work. The U.S. Bureau of Labor describes a few of the major responsibilities, “Registered nurses (RNs) provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public about various health conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients and their family members” (Bureau of Labor Statistics [BLS], 2012, What Registered Nurses Do section. para. 1). The U.S. Bureau of Labor also lists various job ...view middle of the document...

1). The average salary for registered nurses is promising. “The median annual wage for registered nurses was $65,470 in May 2012. The median wage is the wage at which half of the worker in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $45,040 and the top 10 percent earned more than $94,720” (BLS, 2012, Pay section, para. 1). Nursing is a very fast growing field with a good salary.
Registered nurses have various levels of education and can continue their education throughout their career. “Generally, licensed graduates of any of the three types of education programs (bachelor’s, associate’s, or diploma) qualify for entry-level positions as a staff nurse” (BLS, 2012, Education section, para. 3). After gaining a position as a registered nurse there is many opportunities for life-long learning. “Many registered nurses with an ADN of diploma choose to go back to school to earn a bachelor’s degree through an RN-to-BSN program. There are also master’s degree programs in nursing” (BLS, 2012, Education section, para. 4). There are other opportunities for nurses in the form of management. “In management, nurses can advance from assistant unit manage or head nurse to more senior-level administrative roles, such as assistant director, director, vice president, and chief of nursing” (BLS, 2012, Advancement section, para. 2). Nursing offers many opportunities for professional growth.
I learned from my research that nursing is a very promising career. Registered nurses make a good salary and will continue to be in demand. There are many opportunities for professional growth in the nursing field, in the form of management, business, and teaching.
