Becoming a Registered Nurse

December 23, 2012

Becoming a Registered Nurse (RN), can be an excellent career move. Registered Nurses are in short supply throughout the United States. In California, hospitals are struggling to meet a new, first-in-the-nation requirement that they have one nurse on duty for every five patients at all times, and officials say most institutions are falling short. One of the main factors contributing to the nursing shortage is the diminishing number of new students in nursing.
