After earning a nursing degree, your education as a nurse does not stop. This is because the profession is constantly moving forward as new procedures, methods, and approaches to medicine change as medical researchers make new discoveries. Knowing how much the medical field evolves, many state boards of nursing insist on continuing education (CE) to keep nursing licenses valid, ensuring their state’s nurses are up-to-date on the field’s best practices.
Like doctors, nurses and physical therapists, rehabilitation nurse technicians are an integral part of that team. These committed professionals are critical to the conception, implementation and evaluation of a patient’s course of treatment, and the satisfaction they receive from playing a crucial role in an individual’s recovery can’t be measured in dollars or accolades.
Rehab nurses can work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, community and home health settings, and in dedicated rehabilitation centers or hospitals. Rehab nurses work with patients recovering from chronic illness or injury over weeks or even months as patients regain function and independence.
If you’re first embarking on your nursing career, or if you’re considering a change in your nursing specialization, there’s never been a better time to consider the rewarding career of rehabilitation nursing. If you love collaborating with a team, are inspired to keep learning, and aren’t afraid to take on a leadership role when it comes to your patients’ care, rehab nursing might be the perfect next step in your career.

If doctors and patients are the major players on the mainstage of professional healthcare, nurses are the stage managers, light designers, and supporting cast. Nurses are the friendly faces and steady hands of health care and without them the experience of creating healthy lives would be cold, sterile and ultimately unsuccessful.
Just as universities have been forced to move away from holding in-person classes, so too have nursing schools. As a result, nursing schools have adopted online and hybrid formats for educating nursing students.
