Are you personable and do you have a passion for care giving and/or helping others? Are you a good communicator and can you stay calm in difficult situations? If so, perhaps nursing is your calling. Registered nurses provide and coordinate client care, educate clients and the public about various health conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to clients and their family members.

Glen Oaks offers the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing program which qualifies graduates to sit for the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) in Nursing at the Registered Nurse (RN) level. For students who have already licensed as practical nurses, the college offers the LPN to RN Track for this program.

Overall, job opportunities for registered nurses are expected to be good, according to the Department of Labor statistics. Demand for healthcare services will increase because of the aging population, given that older people typically have more medical problems than younger people. Nurses also will be needed to educate and care for clients with various chronic conditions, such as arthritis, dementia, diabetes, and obesity.
