Q (Frequently Asked Questions) – Why is registered nursing a great career choice?

A professional career in nursing has something for everyone:
§ A nurse can get a job in any city or state in the nation Nurses can work when they want to. If you are not a morning person, you can work an evening or night shift. If you like longer periods of time off to travel or enjoy your family, you can work 12-hour shifts and have 3 or 4 days off in a row If you like excitement, you can work in the emergency room or be a flight nurse on a helicopter that goes out to remote areas to pick up accident victims
§ If you like being part of happy occasions, you can work in the delivery room where babies make their way into the world or the nursery where new parents learn how to take care of their babies
§ If you like a new and different challenge every day, you can be a home health nurse going into the community to help people recover from their illnesses in their own homes
§ If you want to have summers off to be with your children, you can be a school nurse.”
