HCI’s RN Nursing Program
Registered nurses, or RNs, are key to the functionality and procedures of many different types of medical centers.
RNs are or can be responsible for a great deal of tasks commonly associated with nursing in general, including patient intake and general patient care, assisting physicians and other medical personnel, supervising the nursing staff, and organizing office procedures in a doctor’s office or nurse’s station in other environments.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were more than 2.7 million employed registered nurses in 2015, making a median salary of over $67,000 annually. Job growth is expected to continue rapidly through at least the next decade, and all signs point to a career in nursing as one with long-term sustainability. The BLS indicates the largest populations of RNs work in hospitals, doctors’ offices, home healthcare settings, and skilled/specialized nursing facilities. Additional jobs are found for RNs in schools, correctional facilities, and the government/military.
