Would you be interested in a career that provides you with an exceptional pay and a myriad of job opportunities in the state of Nebraska? Do you take pleasure in helping others? If you answered “yes” to both the questions, the perfect career for you may be that of a registered nurse (RN). Not only is there currently a high demand for RNs in Nebraska, but those who choose to work here bring home the average paycheck of, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, $69,480 per year!
Becoming an RN in Nebraska, like in rest of the United States, is essentially a three-step process. The first step is to apply for a seat in an associate degree in nursing, or ADN, program and acquire the degree. In some cases, you may need to complete a general education coursework before you can enter an ADN program. However, most ADN students in Nebraska are able to fulfill all of their GE requirements as well as their ADN training in two years. The next step to beginning a career as an RN in Nebraska, like in all other states, involves preparing yourself for the two-part national licensing exam for RNs (NCLEX-RN).
After accomplishing passing scores on both parts of the exam, you will receive your RN licensure and be able to apply for RN jobs.
