List of Accredited Online Degrees

Higher education institutions offer students the opportunity to earn a valuable degree in the multi-level concentration of Nursing. The core curriculums of students pursuing the nursing profession can be taken within three types of degrees. Nursing is a challenging and rewarding profession that consistently builds on previous knowledge and coursework with required continuing education courses, even after the degree has been awarded. The Registered Nurse (RN), the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or the Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) are the primary degree levels. Within each degree, a student can specialize in a particular subject of study or obtain a general education.

Before the foundation of modern nursing, nuns and the military provided health care and aid similar to what nursing services are today. Nursing encompasses the indiscriminate care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well in all settings. Students in pursuit of a Nursing degree will be advocates of health promotion, prevention of illness, caring for the ill, disabled and dying. Well trained and educated nurses will provide health education, a safe environment, ethical research and the shaping of health policy in patient and health systems management. The critical profession combines physical science, social science, nursing theory, and technology in everyday function of caring for individuals in need.

Nurses provide the instrumental basic care needed to sustain proper health, additionally working with physicians’ patient care, training, and scope of practice is decided on national, state and local jurisdictions. Nurses can practice independently in a variety of settings dependent on the expertise and level of training and education. Nurse education has evolved into an advanced credential, exceeding the previous Christian, war-time nurse standards and becoming a highly sought after area of study and profession.
