These days, nurses are tasked with an ever-wider range of health care responsibilities. Caring for the sick has gotten increasingly complicated. Hospitals are understaffed and budgets are tight. Are you up to the challenge? Do you long for the joy and fulfillment of being part of the solution?

The graying of our society — plus growing rates of diabetes, obesity, and other conditions — means the health care system is dealing with an increasing number of complex illnesses all at the same time, with profound societal and political implications. In hospitals, clinics, and care centers around the US, nurses are rising to meet these challenges to the best of their ability. And advanced nursing education is empowering nurses to lead the way among health care professionals.

Today’s nurses aren’t just caring for the sick; they’re changing our very notion of modern medicine and health care delivery, giving TED talks, publishing scientific research, developing mobile medical applications, and actively addressing health care policy. Through collaboration with their colleagues, from social workers and oncologists to hospital administrators and public safety personnel, the field of Nursing is growing, and so are opportunities for nurse practitioners, DNP and PhD nurses, nurse educators, nurse-anesthetists, and especially nurse researchers.

New health care technology is itself creating opportunities for nurses. More and more aspects of the profession are electronic: Test results, X-rays, blood work, ordering medication, to name a few. An array of new technologies — mobile devices, electronic medical records, cloud computing, and teleconferencing — invite nurses to be digitally ambitious and to constantly stay at the forefront of this strategically important field.

Opportunities to pursue medical specializations — diabetes, obesity, pharmacology, and more — are all blooming, mastering complex, multifaceted issues that impact our health care system and our nation. Do you look forward to becoming an effective member of the health care team and navigating complex clinical systems?

In 2004, 170 nurses earned a PhD; in 2011, more than 7,000 nurses earned a PhD*—an increase of more than 4,000 percent!
