Nurses in New York State perform a vital array of services. As the population ages and extended health care becomes the norm, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects U.S. nursing career opportunities to increase, growing faster than the national average between 2008 and 2018. For aspiring health services professionals, online nursing schools in New York allow individuals to continue working while studying.

The BLS reports the following data for nurses in New York State, as of May 2010:

    • 45,100 licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses had a mean annual salary of $42,730

      The BLS reports that RNs make up the largest portion of workers in the health care industry. About 60 percent of RNs work in hospitals, but other opportunities and positions are found in skilled nursing facilities, specialized clinics, or in advanced care specialties. A nurse's level of education can affect earnings, career growth and scope of practice.
