Registered nurses (RNs) provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public about various health conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients and their family members. Click here for a full description of what Registered Nurses do.
Employment growth for Registered Nurses is projected at 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for Registered Nurses is the result of aging populations requiring care for chronic and/or acute health conditions.
