Why Become an RN?

RNs have significantly more authority and responsibility compared to CNAs. They make decisions about patient care, help perform and analyze diagnostic tests, and educate patients and their families on the patients' health conditions and at-home care.

Nursing assistants may provide backup and help RNs carry out their duties, but RNs are the ones who are primarily accountable for these responsibilities. Consequently, RNs typically enjoy a higher degree of job responsibility and better pay than nursing assistants.

Here is a closer look at some of the differences between CNAs and RNs:

 

CNA RN
Lower average pay: $30,2901 Higher average pay: $77,6002
Quicker education path: Most CNAs complete a state-approved nursing assistant training program and pass a certification exam. More education required: Most RNs have a bachelor’s degree, associate’s degree, or a diploma and must pass the NCLEX-RN exam.
Lower accountability: CNAs perform day-to-day tasks with fewer responsibilities. Higher accountability: RNs have more responsibilities and more patient engagement.
Limited career advancement opportunities: You typically need more education or training to progress higher. Ample opportunities for career growth: For example, RNs can specialize or work toward a leadership or management position.
Fewer job openings: 62,7003 More job openings: 195,4004
Good job security: 5.6% unemployment Improved job security: 1.6% unemployment4







 

The benefits of transitioning from CNA to RN go farther than a salary increase and greater responsibility. After earning an RN degree, nurses can specialize in various areas and work in various facilities according to their interests and strengths.

Some of the most common and specializations for RNs include the following:

  • Pediatrics
  • NICU
  • Critical Care
  • Oncology
  • Geriatric Care
  • Cosmetic Surgery
  • Rehabilitation
  • Cardiovascular
  • Genetics
  • Neonatal
  • Public Health
  • Addiction

After completing an accredited RN program, nurses have more freedom to decide where they want their career paths to lead. They open themselves to a broader range of opportunities with more room for growth and satisfaction in their careers.

"My favorite and most valuable resource during my time as a student was, by far, the faculty and my teachers. They were willing to break down what I needed to understand and be successful. They were always willing to assist me when I really needed it."

" I chose to attend 91大神 for both my LPN and RN Bridge programs because of the reception I received from the front office all the way throughout my enrollment process. They were so hospitable – the layout of the facilities and the layout of the lessons favored my life as a full-time CNA during the PN program and a fulltime LPN during the Bridge program. JC accommodated what I needed to be successful and continue to fulfill my normal obligations and responsibilities.

The environment at 91大神 prepared me. You are not spoon fed the information, and I had to start thinking critically immediately once I entered the program – which I had to do as soon as I entered the field and continue to do now at my current jobs."

 As an RN at Mental Health Resource Center of Jacksonville, I work with patients who are dealing with mental/emotional crises. We are there to help stabilize them and help them become happy and productive members of society. It’s really a win-win situation for me and the patient as I get to see them get better and become happier and get back to their normal selves. I also work at Community Hospice of Jacksonville which is a compassionate organization that takes care of patients with terminal diagnoses. We consider the time that these patients have left a gift and we help them live this time to its fullest, ensuring comfort, and helping that patients achieve what they want up until their last minutes.

My favorite and most valuable resource during my time as a student was, by far, the faculty and my teachers. They were willing to break down what I needed to understand and be successful. They were always willing to assist me when I really needed it. My advice for future students is - one step at a time, breathe, and always keep moving forward!"
