JOB OVERVIEW:

Few careers offer the personal, professional and financial rewards of a career in nursing. As a Registered Nurse (RN), you will provide and coordinate patient care, administer medication, monitor patients and offer comfort and health education to patients and their families. Most of all, you will provide the care and compassion that defines the role of a nurse.

Employment in the nursing field is projected to grow at a fast pace as the aging baby boom generation accelerates the demand for healthcare services. Because nursing jobs are available virtually everywhere, you can expect to find job opportunities wherever you choose to live. In addition to working in hospitals, RNs are employed in nursing homes, clinics, schools, physicians’ offices and other healthcare settings.

You can become a Registered Nurse with either an associate or bachelor’s degree. Many Mississippi schools offer nursing programs so find out more about your educational options and see which one is right for you.
