important professions in the world. RNs enter their careers through a long list
of possible areas of nursing: Many begin in acute care facilities on maternity
units, Emergency Departments, critical care, operating rooms, or working with
psychiatric patients. Others enter into hospice care or become home health
nurses, and the list goes on.
Regardless of where your career in nursing begins, the list of opportunities
for growth, development and career advancement is always growing. The nursing
profession offers a long list of practice areas, specialties, advanced practice,
education and research and nursing management/executive positions, all of which
