Online Nursing Degrees and Careers


Because of what experts call the imminent nursing crisis, more jobs are expected to be created for registered nurses than for any other occupation, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Handbook 2004-5. Job opportunities are expected to be very good, and nursing constitutes the largest healthcare occupation. Even current registered nurses are seeking further education to increase earning potential, often from an online nursing degree program.

Registered nurses deal directly with both patients and physicians. Registered nurses provide bedside care in hospitals, help carry out educational programs to prevent disease for both the public and the private sectors, and help patients cope with illness in nursing homes, support groups, or long-term care units.

Registered nurses must be certified and licensed. You must complete an associate degree, bachelor's degree or master's degree in nursing. An accelerated or online nursing degree is available to people who already have degrees but wish to move into nursing. Aside from the obvious educational requirements, you must be kind, compassionate and understanding to be a successful registered nurse.
