Why Becoming a Registered Nurse is Just Plain Smart

It takes a special kind of person to work in the healthcare industry. Sure, these individuals love helping others, but it takes so much more than just a kind heart and a helping nature. Registered Nurses, for example, make sacrifices every day for people they’ve only just met. So, why do it?
The benefits of becoming a Registered Nurse are endless. It allows you to improve someone’s quality of life. You’re responsible for helping others establish and maintain healthy habits. Sick patients rely on you for your competence, guidance, and compassion.
And with so many opportunities for career and personal growth, it’s one profession that keeps things interesting. Think about it: you could start out working in a hospital or medical office and decide your true passion lies in rehab. Here are just a few other areas where you could find nursing positions that speak to you:

  • Long-term care/sub-acute care
  • Acute care healthcare facility
  • Ambulatory care
  • Schools
  • Military
  • Home healthcare
  • Correctional facilities
