Exam Planner for Nursing School Entrance Exam Study Guide
If you enjoy caring for others and interacting with a wide range of people, and if you cope well when confronted with challenges, nursing is a great career choice. Nursing is also a secure profession with excellent starting salaries and very good job prospects. Job opportunities in nursing abound—registered nurses fill more than 2.3 million jobs, making up the largest healthcare occupation in the nation. And the need for nurses is likely to continue to soar—many of today's nurses are beginning to retire, leaving thousands of job openings. The U.S. population as a whole is also aging, and because older people require more nursing care, the demand for skilled nurses willing to work on the front lines of patient care will also increase. Technological advances in medical care, which allow more medical conditions to be treated, and an emphasis on preventive care also create a greater demand for nurses. As you consider your future in nursing, think about these facts:
- More new jobs are likely to be created for registered nurses than for any other occupation.
- Employers in some areas of the country report a nursing shortage, spurring efforts to attract and keep nurses on staff.
- Hospital outpatient facilities—like same-day surgery centers or rehabilitation centers—offer the most rapid growth in nursing jobs.
To become a nurse, you need to pursue one of three educational routes—a bachelor's degree, an associate's degree, or a hospital diploma. You may also consider becoming a licensed practical nurse (LPN), which requires only one year of training in a vocational or technical school and can be a stepping stone to becoming a registered nurse. Most nursing programs require that you take an entrance test, and that's where this book comes in. Nursing School Entrance Exam was designed from real tests, including the admissions test you will face to get into the program of your choice. By tailoring your study plan and using the information in this book, you can achieve your best score and begin the path of your desired career—training to become a nurse.
