Description

This concise and handy volume profiles 101 different types of nursing careers.

Few careers have the advantages that nursing offers: flexibility, room for growth, satisfaction from helping others. And there is a desperate need for nurses--demand will exceed supply for some time to come.

Each profile includes a basic description, education requirements, skills needed, compensation, related web sites, and professional organizations. Personal stories from practicing nurses highlight the content. Students, those looking for a career change, and RNs looking for new opportunities will find a wealth of information here.

A Sample of possible career choices include:
* Acute Care Nurse Practitioner
