Article Body:
It sometimes may seem like there are pages in the classified ads every Sunday for registered nurse jobs. In
fact, registered nurses now constitute the largest healthcare occupation, as there are over 2.3 million jobs
available. If you are looking to get into a growing field where you are in the drivers seat with employment
and salary choices, it may be that becoming a registered nurse is a good option for you.


What is a registered nurse and why are there so many registered nurse jobs out there? A registered nurse is
one that has a college degree (Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree) from an accredited institution and has
passed his or her nursing boards. Required classes to get a degree so that you can qualify for registered
nurse jobs include anatomy, physiology, chemistry, nutrition, and behavioral science classes like
psychology. Most schools require clinical experience, and this experience will also help you when you are
looking for registered nurse jobs.


Education and experience are key components to certain registered nurse jobs. If you are considering
registered nurse jobs in administration, you may want to consider getting a Bachelor degree, as many
organizations now require it. Sometimes if you are considering registered nurse jobs in more complex areas
like surgery or neo-natal intensive care, organizations will want you to gain significant clinical experience.
Also, other registered nurse jobs may even require you to have a masters’ degree, like being a nurse
practitioner, certified nurse midwife, or certified nurse anesthetist.


Registered nurse jobs require a lot of patience and dedication, as a registered nurse will be promoting good
health, prevent disease, and helping patients through times of illness. Registered nurse jobs also require you
to be detail oriented and have decent writing skills. For instance, registered nurse jobs in psychology will
require a nurse to document (in detail) behavior, response to medication, and follow doctor directions
carefully so that a patient receives the appropriate care.


If you are qualified or looking to be qualified for registered nurse jobs, then you should be pleased that the
job outlook for registered nurse jobs is very high. In fact, registered nurse jobs are expected to grow faster
than the average growth for all other jobs through the year 2012. Registered nurse jobs in hospitals is
expected to remain the same, though registered nurse jobs in nursing care facilities is expected to grow
exponentially as the baby boomer generation ages.


Other areas in which registered nurse jobs are expected to increase is home healthcare and outpatient care
centers. The growth for these registered nurse jobs may be due to technological advances and pressure from
insurance companies to avoid in-patient hospitalization. Many advances in medicine have created registered
nurse jobs in which RNs travel to patient homes to provide care or perform procedures in outpatient
facilities.


The varying types of registered nurse jobs, and the great need for people to fill those jobs has offered the
opportunity for RNs to have more variety in their careers. Many organizations now offer major bonuses and
high salaries to lure RNs, as there are more jobs than nurses. Thus, finding registered nurse jobs can be a
process of knowing what type of nurse you want to be and seeking out the opportunity to fill that need.
