Registered Nurse (RN)

A registered nurse (RN) is someone who has graduated a program of nursing education and is licensed by the proper state authority and passed state board examination.

The hottest cities for nurse jobs are large cities such as:  New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Those cities have higher salaries, however the trade-off is long hours and more stress in a large city as opposed to small community where usually there is less patients to serve. A registered nurse is responsible for helping individuals prevent disease and to care for sick people (nursing homes, hospitals, physicians offices, schools, or public homes).

Nurses can specialize in a variety of fields including the following:
