What Can I Do With a Nursing Degree?

Nursing is the largest healthcare field. Three out of five nurses work in hospitals, but a wide variety of organizations also employ nurses. Many nursing positions have flexible schedules and allow for part-time work.

Nursing combines science and technology with the desire to help people. One must enjoy helping people of all types and backgrounds. Nursing requires both physical stamina and emotional stability. Nurses must be able to follow orders and direct others.

Entering a field of advanced practice nursing, for example a clinical nurse specialist, nurse practitioner, nurse midwife, nurse anesthetist, or nursing administration, requires earning a master's degree. Teaching or conducting research may even require a doctoral degree.
