Nursing jobs are classified as registered nursing/ (RN), licensed practical nursing or licensed vocational nurses (LPN/LVN), and nursing assistant. Registered nurses are professional nurses who supervise the tasks performed by LPNs, and nursing assistants. LPN and LVN nurses provide basic care under the guidance of a doctor, registered nurse, or a nurse practitioner.

Nursing assistants cannot be considered nurses. Their duties are limited to the tasks handed over by the RN or LPN. Certified nursing assistants help nurses by administering hygienic care, giving basic psychosocial care, and similar duties. Furthermore, the nursing jobs are categorized as full time nursing, part time nursing, contract nursing, hospital nursing, office nursing, permanent nursing, private duty nursing, public health nursing, health or industrial nursing, psych nursing, and travel nursing.

A full time nurse is a registered nurse who is regularly scheduled on a forty hour week in a seven day period, or an eighty hour week schedule in a fourteen day period, or one hundred sixty hours in a four week period. Hospital, office, and home nursing are the types of full-time nursing jobs. Part time nurses have to work a minimum of twenty hours in a seven-day period and are eligible for prorated salaries and benefits.

Of the different types of nursing jobs, contract nursing is rapidly becoming the favored RN career opportunity. For those who prefer a stable position in one location, full-time nursing job is the right choice. Part-time nursing and travel nursing jobs are best suited for those who enjoy traveling and variety in the work place. Most of these nursing jobs offer competitive pay and free housing.

Recently, there has been an increase in the number of nursing agencies and recruitment Web sites like CyberCoders, Advance Nursing, Allied Global Nursing Inc. These Web sites help job seekers to find a nursing job across the nation or in their own neighborhood.
