Careers in Nursing: Learn Expert Tips During National Nurses Week

Nurses play an integral role in nearly every doctor’s office or hospital visit – they change bandages, administer medication and chart patients’ medical information, and that’s only a fraction of what they do on a daily basis. They often have many more duties and are more skilled than the general public realizes. As such, sometimes they don’t get the recognition they deserve.

May 6-12 is National Nurses Week across the United States. Rasmussen College is planning to recognize these important healthcare providers with a Career Chat designed to offer more information about careers in nursing.

Nurses are in demand in today’s job market, both licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs). In fact, LPN and RN jobs are expected to grow more than 20% through 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Are you interested in this profession and want to know more?
