I love nursing! Today there are so many opportunities for nurses in so many specialities.
I have had so many jobs over the years including; as a nurse in a hospital on a surgical floor and ER, public health nurse doing home visits and in a clinic, teaching childbirth classes, drug rehab for teens, doctor\'s office, home health nurse and working for a medical company.
I always wanted to be a nurse. Years ago many women only chose between nursing and teaching. A few looked outside those professions.
I volunteered in a hospital and a nursing home when I was in high school and loved both of those experiences. I felt good when I helped others to feel better.
I went to Georgetown University and received my B.S.N (Bachelor of Science in Nursing).
Presently I work part time and every day is different and most not full days. I do home health visits to older people to assess their needs as they all have health care aids. I help with medications and make care plans. I spend more time than necessary most days as so many older adults are so lonely and they love the company.
I also work for a medical company and teach patients how to use a certain piece of medical equipment.
One day a week I work in a doctor\'s office and assist the physician.
Being on road many days.
If I was in a hospital or high tech home health it would be keeping up with new equipment and technology.
Meeting new people.
Helping /teaching/ making a difference in someone's life.
It's only for women.
Nurses cannot do much independently-- nurses , especially nurse practitioner have so much independence and opportunities.
Casual- not jeans.
Could wear scrubs- I don't except when I am working in the doctor's office.
So many opportunities in a many areas all over the world.
Go to graduate school soon after graduation--after getting a year or two of experience.
Work part time when you have a family - it is easier to keep up and get positions you might want later in life.
There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.
