Have Unlimited Opportunities

Many exciting and rewarding opportunities exist in nursing.

Nurses can make choices about where they work and the types of patients they care for.

Nurses have choices beyond hospital nursing. Clinics, surgery centers, schools, large companies, colleges, and rehabilitation centers are just some of the areas where nurses work.

If you want to be the boss, nursing has a place for you as well. Nurses are:

  • Managers
  • Executives
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Lawyers
  • Government officials
  • Educators

Nursing can take you anywhere. Nurses work with the police in forensics departments, on movie sets, as flight nurses in the military, and as legal consultants. Many nurses choose to focus on community health by becoming case managers or visiting nurses (nurses that go out to patient’s homes).
