The Golden Spike linking the eastern and western segments of the Great Transcontinental Railway was driven into the railroad ties in Promontory Summit, Utah, linking East and West on May 10, 1869. And that's just one of the historic facts that will make your days at a Utah college or university interesting. Utah has a long and vibrant history, starting with tens of thousands of years of Native American settlement. The long wagon trains moving Americans west in the Gold Rush and beyond crossed Utah, and perhaps its most celebrated settlers were the Mormons, who found sanctuary at last in 1846, after many years of continued exile and oppression as they wandered across the country.

Today, the strong influence of the significant Mormon population makes Utah an industrious and self-reliant state, where neighbors look out for neighbors, and everyone does their best to make strangers feel welcome. Attending college in Utah is likely to be a memorable and valuable experience.

Utah Career Colleges: Nursing, Licensed Practical Degrees

Students can work towards degrees in Nurse Practitioner or Family Nurse Practitioner Programs, as well as Registered Nurse Programs.

Although people respect and appreciate nurses most of us probably don't realize how many different types of nurses there are. Among many specializations available, some nurses choose to qualify for more senior (and better-paid) work by taking family nurse practitioner degrees to enhance their professional skills.

Nurse practitioners are licensed to provide primary healthcare at a stage beyond that of a registered nurse. They may diagnose and provide treatment for common illnesses, and they can also prescribe some medicines. A family nurse practitioner specializes in providing healthcare in a family context, working in a private practice, clinic, or hospital, among other locations.

If you are already (or are thinking of becoming) a registered nurse and you want to develop your career as a nurse practitioner you will need to study some advanced topics in nursing. Building on your existing range of expertise you will study subjects such as advanced pharmacology, advanced health assessment, the theory underlying family nursing, diagnostic techniques, and other courses to enable you to provide practitioner nurse services to the highest level. Add those to the skills brought forward from the bachelor's degree you already possess and you will see why the holders of family nurse practitioner degrees can look forward to excellent careers in their chosen field.
