Nurses are in demand everywhere, and the critical role that nurses play in health care is expanding rapidly. In addition to offering competitive salaries and the personal satisfaction that comes from helping others, nursing provides tremendous opportunities for a variety of challenging and rewarding careers. The diverse roles of nurses include—but are not limited to—staff nurses, legal-nurse consultants, researchers, case managers, educators, community health nurses, entrepreneurs, and directors of nursing.
