  • Exploring Nursing Career Choices

    Nursing. Now that's a career you can be proud of. Knowing that you're spending your days helping people when they need it the most will keep that warm, fuzzy feeling going long after you finish your shift at the hospital, nursing home, or doctor's office. No matter which area of nursing you choose, you'll be confident that you are contributing to the well-being of your community, and helping to make a difference. You know you fit here. You know that this is the path for you. The only problem is figuring out where to start.

    Understanding the various nursing career paths is essential to choosing the right training to get you where you want to be. Take the first step and discover what it means to be a registered nurse, vocational nurse, and more.


    Registered Nurse

    Becoming a registered nurse usually requires the most training of all the nursing career options, but with that comes more responsibility, the chance to take on specialties, and the opportunity for greater career growth within various healthcare settings. Deciding to pursue this occupation can help you obtain employment in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, surgical centers, long-term care facilities, ambulatory centers, and schools.


    Practical/Vocational Nurse

    Practical nurses or vocational nurses (the title varies depending on where you'll be practicing) generally work in a hands-on role with patients. Providing care within hospitals, care homes, and other patient care facilities, this path would allow you to play a vital part on any healthcare team. Depending on the vocational nursing program you choose, you will learn everything from how to collect samples for lab tests to how to monitor medical equipment. Becoming an LPN or LVN might be the rewarding career that you have been searching for.


    Patient Care Technician

    The role of a patient care technician can extend from monitoring vital signs and drawing blood to assisting with therapeutic care and performing CPR. Choosing this path would put you in a position that has the most contact with patients in a bedside setting.


    Nursing Assistant

    Choosing to become a nursing assistant can offer you the opportunity to work in nursing without having to commit the time to a licensed practical or registered nursing program. A nursing assistant can perform a wide range of duties that includes helping patients with hygiene, post-operative care, and more.


    Your Next Step

    Decide which nursing discipline you're interested in. Which one sparks your interest? Start exploring the programs that fit your goals. Whether it's online, accelerated, or part-time, there are plenty of options that can help you get to where you want to be. The career you're after is waiting for you. It's up to you to take the next step!
