    A range of available training options includes Indiana Wesleyan University's online nursing programs. After completing a degree, a student must then pass a licensing test, known as the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), in order to become a RN. Licensed professionals can seek employment opportunities at facilities such as Indiana University Health, Methodist Hospitals in Gary and Merrillville, and Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, which services over 700 beds.

    The BLS reports a mean annual wage of $57,820 for RNs in Indiana as of May 2010, while LPNs and LVNs in the state earned $38,100. Specialized positions--such as personal care services or pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing--can pay higher rates, according to BLS data. Indiana nursing schools online can help prepare students to seek rewarding employment opportunities after graduation.

              Advanced Nursing Degrees at Nova Southeastern University – Offered Online!! Secure your career Change healthcare. Choose the best nursing program for you New technologies, New nursing responsibilities, New healthcare policies. There have been so many rapid changes within the healthcare field in recent years. The focus on evidence-based care is apparent. For instance, as of 2013, the American Nurses Association (ANA) requires 100% of nursing managers to hold a B.S.N. or higher to even qualify for their “Magnet” hospital designation.

              The Institute of Medicine’s “Vison 2020” recommends all clinical nurses hold a B.S.N., and the ACN backs their recommendation. This means that top healthcare organizations aren’t considering hiring clinical nurses without at least the B.S.N. credential. Advanced nursing roles call for a master’s or doctorate-level degree. Like many things over time, the nursing industry has expanded beyond the skills and knowledge an R.N. credential alone provides. To maintain a lifelong nursing career, or to work in one of the many new nursing positions, you need an advanced nursing degree.Nursing Degree Options.If you’re wondering what program is best for you, think about the responsibilities you enjoy as a nurse as well as what you’re naturally interested in learning.
