Nursing Work Environment

The registered nurse (RN) is a licensed health care professional with a dynamic and essential role on the health care team. RNs practice in a variety of settings; hospitals, clinics, emergency centers, long-term care, rehabilitation facilities, schools, correctional facilities and home health care agencies. Registered nurses care for patients throughout the lifespan, from birth through the end of life.

The practice of nursing is “the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations. (American Nurses Association, 2017)

Critical-thinking and decision-making ability, as well as a life-long commitment to learning, are important assets in this demanding but rewarding profession.

Applying to the Nursing Program

As you consider applying to the Clark College Nursing Program, it is important that you, as a candidate, understand the requirements of the program and the profession.

Students in the Nursing program as well as nurses working in the health care field, experience extended periods of great physical exertion that include long hours of walking, standing, reaching, bending and twisting. Nurses frequently lift and move patients and equipment.
