Registered Nurses, Occupational Outlook Handbook Home Page:"Registered nurses (R.N.'s) work to promote health, prevent disease, and help patients cope with illness. They are advocates and health educators for patients, families, and communities. When providing direct patient care, they observe, assess, and record symptoms, reactions, and progress; assist physicians during treatments and examinations; administer medications; and assist in convalescence and rehabilitation."


Kaplan's FREE NCLEX practice lab:"The NCLEX is a standardized test and by definition, standardized tests have "standard" ways of approaching questions and tested content. So to carry the argument a step further, there are "standard" ways of successfully approaching standardized tests. That's what Kaplan does. In the Practice Lab, you can acquaint yourself with the key concepts and content as tested on the exam—and get a clear understanding of what you're up against. Try some sample questions, access some of Kaplan's exclusive strategies, find out how beat test stress, and more. So go on, test yourself...see how you stack up against the NCLEX."

Selected Facts About Hispanic Registered Nurses, Division of Nursing, Bureau of Health Professions, Health Resources and Services Administration:"AThe health of the Nation’s population depends on: an adequate supply of healthcare providers, i.e., nurses, and a nursing workforce that reflects the racial/ethnic composition of the population. Hispanic Americans are the second-largest and fastest growing minority in the United States. The U.S. Census Bureau reported that approximately one in eight people is of Hispanic origin. In 2000, 32.8 million Latinos resided in the United States, representing 12% of the total population. By the year 2050, the Hispanic population is predicted to increase to 97 million and constitute 25% of the population, surpassing African Americans. The U.S. Census Bureau (2000) reported the 123,838 Hispanic resided in Tennessee, 2% of its population. Only 2 % of the total number of RNs in the United States are Hispanic (National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses, 2001). Reportedly, as of September 2001, only 23 of the 64,970 RNs in Tennessee are Hispanic (personal communication, TDH, Department of Health Statistics and Research, 2000)."

Approximately 2,433,000 RNs are female-95.1% of the total nursing population. 9% of all RNs are under the age of 30. Nearly 30% are over age 50. The average age of an RN in the United States is 44.3 years. Approximately 90% of all RNs are Caucasian; 4.2% are African American; 3.4% are Asian or Pacific Islander; 1.6% are Hispanic; and .5% are American Indian or Alaskan Native."
