What can you do with a Nursing degree?

Imagine yourself as a Registered Nurse (RN).  RN’s with a BSN degree have numerous options in nursing to choose from including medical-surgical nursing, intensive care, trauma nursing, pediatrics, obstetrics, oncology, home health care and community-health nursing.  In addition, many RN’s continue their education to earn a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) or a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) degree.  Registered Nurses can also earn professional certifications to become nurse anesthetists (CRNA), nurse practitioners (CRNP) and nurse educators (CNE).  The profession of nursing IS more rewarding than you can imagine.
