What Can You Study in a Nursing School?

Today, your choices in nursing education are quite broad. Get your feet wet as an RN for a couple years and your education and career options jump, particularly once you earn your BSN, or Bachelor of Science in Nursing. You can really work in almost any aspect of healthcare. A few of the specialties that are really hurting for good nurses include nursing education and nursing administration. But a couple of really cool opportunities offer challenging careers that don't keep you cooped up inside a hospital: flight nurse, legal nurse, and forensic nurse.

Think Ahead: Salary and Jobs

All of these nursing specialties may be found right in a school in Delaware. Think ahead while you plan as well. The bulk of staff RNs in Delaware earn a salary between $58,000 and $70,000* depending upon experience, education, care facility and specialization.

Since most RNs are employed by hospitals it's important to know that over 20 hospitals are located in the state and range from large general facilities to small community medical centers. Regardless of your intended specialization, you'll find ample job opportunity in Delaware.
