Career Opportunities in Nursing
Nurses are consistently in high demand, and Adelphi University’s PATH program prepares students to provide nursing care in varied settings, which include trauma centers, community hospitals, home health agencies, rehabilitation centers, long-term care facilities, hospice agencies, schools, industrial and organizational settings, and the military.
The PATH second degree in nursing prepares individuals to become registered nurses (RNs). According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job rate growth for RNs is expected to grow by 22% from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations. The median annual salary of a registered nurse is $62,450 according to data released by the Bureau in 2008. For more employment statistics for nurses, go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Graduate Degree Options
A bachelor of science degree is required to pursue an advanced degree in nursing, which prepares the nurse for roles such as nurse educator, nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, nurse midwife, nurse anesthetist, nurse administrator, and nurse researcher.
This program provides students interested in further studies a smooth transition from the B.S. in nursing to Adelphi’s graduate studies programs including Master of Sciences degree for Adult Health Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Administration, and Nursing Education as well as the Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing (Ph.D.)
