Registered nurses work directly with sick, disabled, and injured patients to assess, plan, and implement patient care. They also educate patients and the public about various health conditions, techniques, and procedures to promote health, and they provide advice and emotional support to patients and their family members. RNs have a lot of responsibility. Some of their duties include developing patient care plans and assessments and determining patients' needs, administering injections and medications, assisting physicians during treatments, supervising nurses' aides, and delegating tasks. Employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 26 percent from 2010 to 2020. Registered nurses work in hospitals, schools, summer camps, physicians' offices, home health care services, and nursing care facilities. They also work in correctional facilities, specialty doctors' offices, private care agencies, and in the military.Every program for nursing education includes clinical work in conjunction with classroom studies. Students who want to become registered nurses should be prepared to complete course work in nursing and a number of sciences: anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, and psychology. Whether students earn an associate degree, bachelor's degree, or diploma in nursing, the RN designation isn?t available until the NCLEX-RN national licensing exam is taken and passed.
