Careers & Alumni
What do nurses do?
Registered Nurses will formulate patient care plans, direct and supervise care of patients by others and educate families and communities about health promotion and disease prevention.
Nurses work in hospitals, doctor's offices, schools, and private industries such as the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. RN's have a flexible schedule because nursing is a 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week profession.
Is this career for me?
A Registered Nurse needs to be compassionate, culturally sensitive, and efficient. They need to be critical thinkers who are able to make decisions. They must also be good communicators.
Nurses' roles cover a wide range which includes, but is not limited to, direct patient care and case management, establishing nursing practice standards, developing quality assurance procedures, directing complex nursing care systems, conducting clinical research, and teaching in nursing programs.
