About this course

Nurse professionals are members of interdisciplinary teams in clinics, hospitals, and community settings, and work with people of all ages, cultural backgrounds, and lifestyles to help them achieve the highest level of wellness possible. Nurse practitioners fill critical healthcare needs in both urban and rural settings, often for portions of the population who have not received adequate healthcare. Nurse scientists conduct important research about a variety of health problems and how best to promote health, prevent disease, and care for people who are ill. Nurses also teach in colleges and universities throughout the world.
