The Latest in Modern Nursing
Discover the latest advocacy issues, expert interviews, and other resources within nursing professions at all levels.
Nurses are expected to adhere to the morals of the profession and embrace them as a part of what it means to be a nurse. Having a code of ethics makes it clear what the profession’s primary goals, obligations, and values are.
Nursing, at its core, is the profession of caring for others. However, compassion, an essential trait for nurses, extends beyond caring for needs. According to researcher Beth Lown in a paper published in the Association for the Study of Medical Education Journal, “Compassion involves recognition, understanding, emotional resonance and empathic concern for another’s concerns, distress, pain and suffering, coupled with their acknowledgment, and motivation and relational action to ameliorate these conditions.”
Careers in Nursing & Nurse Leadership
Modern nursing careers are as varied as the people they serve, and each nursing role has its own educational, certification, and licensure requirements. While this complexity is a sign of a maturing profession, it can also be confusing, even to veteran nurses; a growing number of specializations and sub-specializations can complicate the process further.
Whether you’re beginning your nursing career, curious about specialization options, or are looking to brush up on certification requirements, our detailed career guides for nursing roles have everything you need.
Nursing Programs, Leadership Degrees & More

Hybrid and online learning models mean it’s never been easier to complete your nursing education, but not all programs are created equal: accreditation, tuition, coursework, faculty, and residency requirements are all important factors for aspiring nurses to consider. We’ve done all the research necessary to help find the program that’s right for you.
Nursing & Nurse Practitioner (NP) Licensure By State
State licensure ensures that nurses are competent to perform their unique scope of practice. Every nurse and APRN needs to be licensed, but their licensure requirements vary from role to role and from state to state.
While most nursing degree programs model their curriculum to match the requirements of the state in which they’re based, the rise of online programs means there are often more nuanced factors at work. We give you comprehensive and detailed information on what requirements apply specifically to you.
