Diplomas reward a student’s commitment to studying and mastering the intricacies of a chosen topic. After completing the necessary classes, a diploma gives students the opportunity to apply the knowledge and experience they’ve worked so hard to gain.

What is a diploma in nursing? A nursing diploma is a rigorous program that imparts to students skills such as administering medicine, caring for patients and working as part of a medical team. The program will generally require the completion of introductory courses prior to enrolling in advanced classes and clinical experience. Clinicals are the internships nursing students usually must complete prior to finishing their diploma. During this time, students may also select classes in a specialized field.

A nursing diploma prepares students to either become a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or a registered nurse (RN). This flexibility lets students choose what level of specialization they prefer, and students who do not become licensed still benefit from the caregiving, teamwork and medical skills nursing school imparts.

Nursing school costs vary based on a variety of factors. Your specialization, location and course selection are all a part of determining the expense, so you should ask the admissions office at the nursing school you are interested in for an estimated cost of attendance.

Career opportunities will depend on whether you become licensed as an LPN or an RN. LPNs are usually qualified to work in long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers and many other health care facilities. Hospitals require more specialized care for patients, however, and will often only hire RNs with a specific focus such as medical and surgical, telemetry, intensive care or emergency room. No matter the level of licensure or specialization you choose, there will be plenty of work available for students with a nursing diploma.

There are many nursing schools that offer options to study online or part-time. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
