In the nursing field there are over 100 areas that you can specialize in depending on which degree you have obtained. These specialties can be broken down into 9 different categories including Advanced practice, clinical, community, emergency, family, management, psychological, surgical and women’s health. With just an RN degree you are eligible for 48 different specialties which include basic entry level specialty positions like trauma, school, radiology, pediatric, and ambulatory nurses. With a ADN you can get up to 71, which includes all RN positions and a few positions not in the hospital setting like consultants, planners or writers. Finally with a BSN you get 80 different specialties which include all the jobs and RN and a person with an associate's degree and then you’re able to get jobs that are more in the intensive care as you have had more time to study those kinds of thing also more leadership positions in the field

Genetic mapping/sequences had begun saving many kids lives. this type of new technology was created about 3 years ago to help map a childs genes and discover very rare disease and hopefully shed light on common diseaes as well, like heart disease and diabetes. So far they have secuenced about 40 kids and have gotten great results from it.
Jessica Byrd's comment, April 11, 2014 12:34 PM
Gentic mapping for example has helped Lillian, age 4, be diagnosed with tricho-hepato-ebteric syndrome, which only effects 6 other children in the whole wide world that are known. With out this type of technology Lillian would still be traviling to many pediatric specialists and maybe even being misdiagnosed. This mappig has also helped Nic Volker ,also age 4, was diagnosed woth inflammatory bowel disease. this is a sever disease where food in your gut would leak into your abdomen and it can also cause a leukemia-like disorder. After studing what Nic had doctors were able to fix the problem and he is now living a nice healthy life.

Without improving early detection, a proportion of children with a critical congenital heart defect may die or deteriorate to such a condition that the outcome, despite treatment, is compromised.

Pulse Oximetry screening has become the new thing to help with early detection with critical congenital heart defects. Over 50% of heart defects go undetected on a regular ultrasound. With this new method of testing, it can detect up to 3/4 of all heart defects within 24 hours of birth. Whats even better about this is that the equipment is portable affordable and someone like a midwife or junior doctor can perform the test.

a child is 70 to 80 percent more likely to survive a brain tumor if they get an early diagnosis. They have up to 5 weeks of the tumor being developed before it turns deadly. After 5 weeks the tumor causes too much pressure on the brain and make the cancer deadly, more complicated and uncureable. The key to stopping that is spreading all the word to everyone about the signs and symptoms that brain tumors can cause.

The Bachelors degree can be obtained by going to a university that provides a 4 year study program in nursing. Like the Associate degree program, you have to take similar classes and your clinicals, but with the 4 year you go in depth a little more in both your classes and clinicals. In the BSN program you get more of a liberal arts exposure allowing you to, in the future, expand your career and branch off to a different area of the field such as high leadership or higher non-clinical responsibilities. Nurses with a BSN may find it also easier to specialize in certain areas of nursing because they already have the bachelors degree that some other may not have.
Jessica Byrd's comment, April 21, 2014 2:46 PM
Once you are a registered nurse and obtain your BSN you can the further your education even more with a masters degree of science in nursing. This program is generally 2 years and is offered at some colleges and universities. Typically you have to go to school part time to obtain this degree because you are already working full time as a RN. Gaining your Masters degree allows you to become a nurse anesthetist, midwife, practitioner, clinical nurse specialist or if you want to, at that point, work out of the hospital setting you could become an administrator, educator and or faculty member.
Jessica Byrd's comment, April 21, 2014 2:46 PM
Of course with all 3 programs there is a variation in salary. If you come straight out of college with an Associates degree you’re average salary is about $45,390 a year. If you have a bachelors degree and enter the work field you likely to have a beginning salary of about $65.470 a year. If you would like to go all the way and obtain your masters you salary would be about $101,990 a year. All of these salaries are based mostly on when you first start out, once you get more experience in the field your salary will go up.

Cystic fibrosis is a disease that clogs the lungs causing lung infections, and also serious digestive issues. In 1996 age 5 was the average diagnosis age. The diagnosis age was rather high back then because there was no way to detect it until the symptoms showed up which was the lung disease and malnutrition. Even in 2001 the rate was still under 10% of cases being diagnosed. Today the rate is now over 60% and the average age for diagnosis is under 2 years old.
Jessica Byrd's comment, March 5, 2014 12:35 PM
In the time between 2001 and now, a new test was developed to try and achieve early diagnosis to help lower the age of diagnosis called neonatal screening on nutrition outcomes.
