Nursing in the 21st Century

Opportunities for nurses are abundant and are evolving in numerous challenging directions. At one time, nurses were primarily prepared for work in hospitals. Today, a large variety of rewarding opportunities is available, in a range of geographic and cultural settings. Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) students prepare to provide health care to people across their lifespan. RNs develop, implement, modify, and evaluate care for individuals, families, and communities through evidence-based practice. Theoretical and clinical learning experiences prepare students to provide care for the acutely and chronically ill and also to instruct clients in health promotion and disease and injury prevention. BSN students develop skills necessary to manage the healthcare needs of clients in a variety of settings. Nursing positions with the U.S. Public Health Services, Indian Health Service, and those seeking to be commissioned officers in the U.S. military require a BSN degree. A BSN degree allows for career flexibility and serves as the foundation for education at the Master’s (MSN) or Doctoral (DNP) level.

Our nation currently has the opportunity to transform its healthcare system. Nurses can and should play a fundamental role in a transformation that provides seamless, affordable, accessible, quality care. With more than 3 million members, the nursing profession is the largest segment of the nation’s healthcare workforce. According to U.S. News and World Report, the nursing profession ranks #6 in U.S. News Best Jobs for 2014 report. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, for the 2010-2020 decade, the need for RNs will grow 26% faster than overall average growth in other fields.
