Before embarking on this, anyone interested in a nursing career in the Troy / Farmington Hills area should first understand each role and its educational prerequisites.

Nursing roles
The most junior nursing role is the certified nursing assistant (CNA). CNAs assist patients with tasks of everyday living in a variety of long- and short-term care settings. They must pass a state certification examination before practicing. Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) have a longer training period and take the NCLEX-PN exam, which allows them added responsibilities including conducting medical procedures and administering medications. Registered nurses (RNs) qualify by successfully passing the NCLEX-RN after completing an accredited associate’s or bachelor’s degree program. In addition to direct patient care responsibilities, they can also take roles in health education and administration.
