Registered Nurses picture    Registered Nurses image

A registered nurse, or RN, is a licensed medical professional who provides critical treatment and care to sick and injured patients. Registered nurses typically work in hospitals, but can also be found in physicians' offices, home healthcare services or social assistance agencies.

Registered Nursing Schools in New York

To become a registered nurse, there are three typical educational paths--a bachelor's degree (BSN), an associate degree (ADN) or a diploma. Many schools also have accelerated BSN programs for those who already have a bachelor's degree in another field, but want to switch to a career in nursing. A registered nursing program will give you both the classroom education and hands-on experience you need to become an RN. Coursework for registered nurses usually includes anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, behavioral sciences and nursing. Many New York RN schools have online and campus-based options to help you earn an associate's or bachelor's degree in nursing. After graduating from an approved nursing program, you'll need to pass a national licensing exam, called the National Council Licensure Examination, or NCLEX-RN, in order to obtain a nursing license. Other requirements vary by state. Registered nursing schools in New York can provide the education and training you need to become an RN.
