Whether you are a newly-minted R.N. or a veteran nurse, it is well-known that there are currently more Registered Nurse jobs than there are qualified professionals to fill them. If you’re on the hunt for your first nursing job or a new position, opportunities abound. But it’s important to find the right job. How does a Registered Nurse find the job that’s best for him or her?
Registered Nurse positions exist in various types of facilities, the most obvious being hospitals, of course, which comprise nearly 60% of all R.N. jobs. If you’re interested in working in a hospital, again, there are many different things to consider: for example, do you prefer a smaller, community hospital or a university-affiliated teaching hospital in a big city? Do you have a nursing specialty, such as emergency medicine or telemetry, and do you want to continue practicing in that area or try something new, like critical care or post-anesthesia/recovery? Along the same lines, but with more regular and traditional schedules, are R.N. jobs in doctor’s offices or walk-in clinics where you may see a couple dozen patients a day who are seeking routine or urgent care. If the personal touch is your forte, R.N.s provide home health care to housebound patients through social service agencies or hospital programs. Nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities afford nurses the chance to work with patients needing long- or short-term medical care for all kinds of injuries, illnesses and chronic conditions. If your lifestyle is suited to it, travel nursing is an exciting (and potentially very profitable) way to apply your skills, live and work in new places every few months and try out different kinds of R.N. jobs. And jobs for Registered Nurses are plentiful in settings that are often overlooked, such as schools and colleges, camps, correctional facilities, substance abuse treatment centers, state and municipal governments, shelters, the forensic and legal fields, and insurance companies. Some of these jobs are entirely administrative and involve no direct patient care; others are just as hands-on as an R.N. position on a busy surgical floor.
