A registered nurse (RN), regardless of work setting or specialty, provides health care to patients who are ill or injured. While most RNs work at hospitals, a small portion of registered nurses also work in government agencies, social assistance agencies and educational services.

Registered Nursing Schools in Nebraska

To become an RN, you can either get a bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN), an associate degree in nursing (ADN) or a diploma from one of the many RN schools in Nebraska. Registered nurses who earn a master's degree (MSN) are known as advanced practice nurses. These nurses can perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures as well as prescribe medication. As a registered nursing student, you can expect to have both classroom education and hands-on clinical experience. Coursework for registered nurses usually includes anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, behavioral sciences and nursing. You can earn a nursing degree or diploma from an online or campus-based program at one of the many Nebraska RN schools. Registered nursing students must graduate from an approved nursing program as well as pass a national licensing exam called the National Council Licensure Examination, or NCLEX-RN. Other requirements, including continuing education credits, may be necessary so be sure to contact your state's board of nursing for more information. Registered nursing schools in Nebraska can provide the education and training you need to become an RN.
