Nurses are guardian angels for millions of sick and injured patients. They put names to diseases, heal wounds with confidence and provide emotional support to people when they are feeling the worst. A nursing degree delivers the expertise necessary to fight illness, understand lab results, communicate with doctors and examine and treat patients. Students delve into anatomy, human development, pharmacology and other clinical concepts.

Online nursing degrees teach the same skills as campus programs, but they offer more flexibility for shift workers and employees working overtime. Full-time and part-time classes permit men and women to go at their own pace. Because patient interaction is such an important component of any nursing degree, many colleges even lend a hand with setting up clinical observation hours, practicums and internships.

Degrees in nursing are designed with short-term and long-term career goals in mind. Students can pursue interests in babies, the elderly, surgeries, medical emergencies or routine office practice. Graduates find high-paying jobs at nursing homes, medical centers, rehabilitation hospitals, correctional facilities and other healthcare facilities.

If you are new to nursing, a pre-nursing degree (RN not required) offers insights into the basics. It delivers a general education foundation for transferring into a full nursing program.

If you are ready to jumpstart a new healthcare career, you can enroll directly in a nursing degree (RN required). You can choose between a two-year associate’s degree or a four-year bachelor’s degree. In the end you will be qualified to pass the National Council Licensure Examination, NCLEX, and start work as a Registered Nurse.

If you are already a Licensed Practical Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse, you can make more money and work better hours by transitioning into Registered Nursing. The LPN/LVN to RN degree focuses on topics such as medicine administration, infection control and medical leadership. It uses the knowledge and credits you already hold to shorten the time until graduation.

Finally, if you want to advance into management, become a nurse practitioner or enter home health care, you will need an RN to BSN Degree. This distance learning bachelor’s degree helps nurses gain independence in their careers. It prepares you for high-demand positions in hospitals, physician offices, government clinics and universities. You can even move on to graduate-level coursework. There is also an option to earn an accelerated BSN for those who already have an associate’s degree.

The shortage of qualified nurses means that now is the perfect time to change careers or advance beyond your current job. Students can often get scholarships and low-interest loans from their employers and from the federal government. Some employers will even pay for your education in exchange for a service agreement.
