Syracuse is home to a small but gifted population of registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and certified nursing assistants (CNAs). The metro area’s 6,420 RNs, 2,510 LPNs, and 3,450 CNAs deliver exceptional medical care to a population of more than 660,000 people. These professionals work at healthcare centers such as Crouse Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, Syracuse VA Medical Center, and Upstate Medical University.

Staten Island and the surrounding New York City metro area host one of the country’s largest populations of registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and certified nursing assistants (CNAs). The region is home to 94,230 RNs, 20,480 LPNs, and 58,220 CNAs. Many of these professionals work at Staten Island’s top hospitals and healthcare centers, including Staten Island University Hospital and Richmond University Medical Center.

New York is home to an impressive population of almost 170,000 registered nurses (RNs), 50,000 licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and 100,000 certified nursing assistants (CNAs). While these professionals practice in every city across the state, Rochester certainly has its fair share. The city is home to 10,480 RNs, 3,660 LPNs, and 6,100 CNAs. Rochester also offers some of the best career opportunities for nursing professionals, with competitive salaries to boot.

The Mohawk Valley includes the New York counties of Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Oneida, Otsego, and Schoharie. This region is home to 2,980 registered nurses (RNs), 1,570 licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and 2,230 certified nursing assistants (CNAs). Although the population of nurses in Mohawk Valley is small compared to other regions of New York, opportunities are ample and the Valley’s top employers are still quite selective. This means you will need the right degree, training, and experience to land a nursing position.

With a population of over 94,000 registered nurses (RNs), 20,000 licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and 58,000 certified nursing assistants (CNAs), the New York City metropolitan area is a great place to begin a nursing career. While the opportunity for success is promising – particularly in Manhattan – nursing requires special skills that may only be obtained through the proper combination of education and training.
