The healthcare industry is one that has and will always be on the rise because we will forever be in need of health treatment(s) and maintenance. While researching the “Top 10 industries in the USA”, I discovered that Healthcare is the most profitable of the 10 according to inc.com. While researching the top 20 paid jobs in healthcare, I discovered that Registered Nursing was number 16 on the list with regard to pay. Business Insider.
What is an RN or Registered Nurse?
A registered nurse is a nurse who has graduated from a nursing program and met the requirements outlined by a country, state, province or similar licensing body in order to obtain a nursing license. Wikipedia
What jobs do RNs perform?
“RNs can be found in all arenas of health care. On the job, registered nurses perform a variety of functions:
Evaluate and record patient symptoms
Help doctors during exams and surgeries
Dress wounds and incisions
Teach patients about self-care and healthy habits
Review patient treatment plans and measure progress
Act as supervisor to some nurses.” ANS.
Nurses who work from home would perform similar duties with many of them being telephonic. Nurses who work from home can also choose to become Travel Nurses, or take assignments on a per-diem basis. Per diem is much like being paid for each assignment, or in this instance each day of work.
What training is needed to become an RN?
RNs often need nothing more than an associate degree to start in the field. As with every industry those who are educated at advanced levels i.e. Bachelor or Master level workers earn more money and enjoy more freedoms than those at the associate level. Associate level employees can be overlooked for positions when organizations are forced to decide between an associate level versus an advanced level candidate.
How much do RNs earn?
“Those just entering the profession reported an average salary of $44,343 per year and hourly wage of $23, while those with between 21 and 30 years of experience averaged significantly more — $70,268 per year and $37 per hour. The specialty an RN practices may also have a significant effect on earnings.” Chron.
Concluding Thoughts: Healthcare is the number 1 industry with regard to popularity, growth, and necessity. RNs are in the top 20 job categories for the medical profession. An associate degree is all you need to become a Registered Nurse and those can be completed in (2) years time.
