RN Occupation Outlook

Joseph F. McCloskey School of Nursing at Lehigh Valley Health Network prepares students to become licensed registered nurses (RNs). It is expected that 80 percent of our graduates will pass the NCLEX-RN examination on their first attempt and be eligible for gainful employment as a registered nurse.

Prospective and enrolled students are encouraged to investigate the occupational outlook for registered nursing (SOC Code: 29-1141.00): US Department of Labor statistics on a registered nursing career.

Students should also explore the many career opportunities available to registered nurses by visiting the Johnson and Johnson Discover Nursing website.
