Pursue Nursing Degrees through Trade School
Earning your education at a nursing trade school can prepare you for the largest healthcare occupation in the country, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are over 2.5 million registered nurses in the U.S., representing the need for educated medical professionals to help serve millions of patients every year.

Trade schools can prepare students to for a number of nursing licenses and degrees, including:

  • Registered Nurse (RN). Registered nurses care for all types of patients in hospital or clinic settings
  • Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). LPNs typically care for elderly, disabled, or injured patients under the supervision of RNs
  • Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN). A degree that prepares students for a Bachelor's in nursing, and can also qualify students for some nursing jobs.
  • Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). This degree is similar to an ASN.

Some trade school programs culminate in an exam for these licenses, while others offer credits that can be transferred to nurse degree programs.

Registered Nurse Job Field to Experience High Growth by 2016
The Bureau of Labor Statistics of May 2010 predicts that nearly 700,000 new nursing jobs should be created between 2010 and 2020. This represents a great opportunity for students who complete RN, LPN, ASN, and ADN programs from trade schools and other institutions.

Most nurses work in hospital settings, and hours vary from early morning, late night, and overnight shifts. The Bureau reported a median annual salary of $69,110 for RNs based on 2011 data. It also reported a median annual salary of $42,040 for LPNs.
