Alternative Nursing Careers Outside the Hospital
One of the most exciting aspects of earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree — at least from a jobs standpoint — is the wealth of career opportunities it affords.
Though most of the 3 million registered nurses in the United States (as of May 2022) work in hospitals and outpatient clinics, there are plenty of alternative nursing careers outside these settings.
BSN-educated RNs can find work as:
- Home health nurses
- Legal nurse consultants
- Nurse navigators
- School nurses
Even within the traditional hospital or outpatient setting, you’ll find a wide variety of specializations to choose from, including medical-surgical, emergency room, oncology/hematology, pediatrics, maternity, and trauma. Not to mention, experienced nurses can find work as nurse educators and managers.
BSN-educated nurses also have plenty of opportunities to further their education and careers down the road, with many RNs returning to school to become nurse practitioners, midwives and anesthetists, among other exciting careers.
