Careers in Nursing


As part of a national program to encourage young men and women to consider a career in nursing, this Nursing Profession Resource Guide was prepared for Kentucky school counselors at the middle and high school levels. The Resource Guide provides a variety of current information about the nursing profession including statistics, types of nursing programs in Kentucky and a list of nursing schools by region.

The Kentucky Nurses Action Coalition would like to thank the New York Center for Nursing for providing us with their brochure to modify for use in Kentucky. The New York Center for Nursing received funding for the Resource Guide from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) through the Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) grant. Members of the Kentucky Center for Nursing revised the content to apply to Kentucky regulations and practice.

This brochure was created for use in Kentucky by a task force of members of the KCN. We would like to give a huge thank you to all of those who have contributed and encourage you to share with counselors, students and parents.
