Alternative Nursing Careers

  1. Hey Guys, I am in a BSN program right now, and was wondering, What are all the careers you can do with a nursing degree? If I don't want to work in a hospital I want to know all my options I know there's home health, community health, SNF, traveling nurse, anything else I might not think about?? What are the careers without direct pt care? Can a nursing career give you a start to a career as a PA or therapist? Just wanting to pick your brains on this one, thanks

    Look up at the top of this page. See the yellow bar? See "Specialties"? A lot of those have nothing at all to do with bedside care. Go wander around in there and check 'em out.

    Nursing and PA are not in a continuum. There are nurses who become psychotherapists, though, in an APRN role.
