The nursing profession is one of the most diverse professions in healthcare, or in any other industry. There are many types of nursing practice and a long list of specialties and practice areas in nursing. In addition, Registered Nurses have an educational range that begins at an Associate Degree (two year degree) and continues all the way to a PhD and other advanced degrees and advanced practice licenses.
