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:

A nurse's level of education can affect earnings, career growth and scope of practice.
