Community Nurse Educational Requirements

A community nurse will work outside of the traditional hospital or clinical setting. Community nurses will perform patient teaching, preventative healthcare, and provide case management. A Bachelor’s Degree of Science is required.

You must obtain your RN license by completing your nursing program and then applying to take the state board of nursing exam. You may have to submit to a criminal background check and FBI fingerprinting in addition to taking the state board exam. A community nurse will have unlimited employment opportunities in hospitals, health departments, and other healthcare related positions that aren’t in the traditional clinical settings.
