There’s no question that nursing is truly an art form – the art of caring for others. It is also true that the steady demand for qualified nursing professionals shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the nursing industry will see a 15% increase in jobs by 2026, making a career in nursing a great choice.
If you’ve been thinking about a future in nursing, one of your biggest challenges may be deciding which path is right for you among the myriad of options available. Whether you’re already working in the nursing industry or are just beginning your journey, exploring your options and understanding the key differences between LPN and RN can help you make the right decision for your future. We’ve outlined some of those benefits below that may have you ready to take your nursing career to the next level!
Access to more opportunities – The demand for RNs in hospitals and clinics is consistent and many healthcare facilities now require nursing staff with RN degrees.
The learning never stops – With an RN degree, you’ll have the chance to learn techniques and perform far more procedures in a variety of different settings. Translation – you will never be bored.
Halfway there – If you’re already an LPN, you are so much closer to becoming an RN than the average new nursing student. You have the benefit of already being certified, plus everything you’ve already learned both through education as well as on the job. You can do this!
