4 Types of Nursing Professions to Explore

When the average person hears that you would like to become a nurse, the first thing that comes to mind is that you will be working in a hospital somewhere, taking blood pressures and changing sheets. This may be a part of a nurse’s duty, but there are plenty of nursing professions that are unknown to the everyday person. We have outlined a few professions in the nursing field for you to explore to help broaden your options.

Travel Nurse

Many people believe that traveling and working should be separated. Being a travel nurse buries that argument. As a travel nurse, you can visit various destinations around the world while doing what you love. You have the ability to select where you would like to go and for how long. This profession is most popular amongst single individuals without families as you tend to spend months out of the year way from home.

Legal Nurse

Do you have a passion for nursing and working in the legal field? This profession combines them both. As a legal nurse or Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, you use your immense healthcare knowledge to work on medical related cases. What makes this position most attractive is that it is attainable with an RN license and allows you to be a part of the legal process without obtaining a legal degree.

RN Case Manager

This profession is most similar to a social worker’s job but instead, has to deal with the medical field. As an RN Case Manager, your duties include:

  • Perform new admissions
  • Outline care plans
  • Supervise over healthcare staff

You have the freedom to work in a hospital, clinic, home health agency, and much more as an RN Case Manager.

Nurse Educator

Do you love the nursing field so much that you would like to spread that knowledge? As a nurse educator, you can teach students on everything they need know about becoming a nurse. This position often requires you to have an advanced degree and allows you to be everything from a high school teacher to a university professor.

You have many options to pursue in the nursing field and these are just a few for you to explore. Allow Ardor Health Solutions to help you find the position right for you. Check out our healthcare job listings today and get on your way to a rewarding career.

Finding Your Healthcare Job After Graduation

After many long hours of sleepless nights, studying at a book, and taking notes in class, you finally did it. The days of college life are over and now it’s time to get started on your career. Fresh out of school, many students like you find themselves less prepared than they thought they would be to find a job. The stress of getting good grades makes it easy forget about what should happen next when the hustle is over. Many health graduates simply need to look over what paths they can take and decide which is the best fit for their skills. Luckily, since the medical field is growing fast, more health care career options are available than ever. Take a look at some of them below:

Medical Lab Technician

If you’re looking to keep your work behind a desk, medical lab technicians perform most of their duties away from the busy hospital environment. These employees often analyze and test samples of blood, tissue, urine, and more. They often work closely with physicians to discuss what the results of these tests mean, and sometimes take the samples from the patients themselves. Not all states require a license to work as a medical lab technician.

Registered Nurse

Some may view registered nurses as the hospital’s life-force. They work close with patients and their families, providing personalized attention and emotional support that physicians cannot supply. As a registered nurse, you can choose work environment options outside of the hospital, including schools and primary nursing care facilities. Some nurses choose more specialized roles, such as critical nurses who spend most of their time in the intensive care unit (ICU) or licensed practical nurses who mainly work in clinics and private residences.

Medical Assistant

If you are looking for a healthcare career that leans toward the administrative side, a medical assistant (or, eventually, medical secretary) is tasked with making sure the wheels keep turning in the clinic. They are often in charge of keeping appointments scheduled and running on time, answering phones and welcoming guests, working to make sure insurance information is up to date, and they accomplish minor medical tasks like measuring blood pressure. Employers prefer it when those who apply for a medical assistant job can provide a program certificate.

Health Information Technician

The health information technician (HIT) is in charge of ensuring the quality and accuracy of every document that flows throughout the hospital. They usually don’t work closely with patients, but are in constant communication with registered nurses and other professionals to make sure that all information is available, precise, and secure. Most employers want to see professional certification when you apply for a position.

You are most likely more than aware that healthcare work goes beyond the typical check-ups and life-changing surgeries we often see on tv shows. Just because you graduated doesn’t mean your time to learn has come to an end. In fact, you are getting closer to putting your knowledge to the test, learning and applying your skills, and learning what role you can play in the healthcare field. If you’re looking for a career that will not only play to your strengths, but will allow you to explore the country, take a look at our constantly updating, traveling healthcare positions.
