Why is it so hard to choose a career in nursing?
That’s exactly why choosing a career is so challenging. It’s not like you can just spend a few years in school, try out a job for a bit and jump to another if you don’t like it—well, at least not without more education and training. Becoming a registered nurse (RN) is no different.
Why should I major in nursing?
You should major in nursing because you want to be a nurse. If you are asking “why”, it doesn’t sound like you are committed. If you love science and are prepared to take a lot of science courses…consider nursing.
Is it too late to become a nurse with a degree?
Whether you you’ve always wanted to work in healthcare or you’re discovering a newfound calling, it’s not too late to become a nurse. The good news is that if you have a degree, you won’t have to start from scratch as the Rasmussen University A-BSN second-degree entrance option was made for someone like you.
Do you have a nursing career regret?
But some regrets are bigger than others. The subject of choosing a major or degree program can be an example of a big one. If you’ve earned a degree in a field that for whatever reason didn’t turn out to be what you imagined, it’s only natural to be a little concerned about transitioning into a nursing career.
Can you come back to nursing after a different career path?
After choosing a different career path, you may decide to come back to nursing eventually. Or, you may choose something that is a perfect fit, and you’ll stick with it for a long time. Keep in mind that you never have to stay in a career that leaves you unhappy or unsatisfied.
What can you learn from your 30-year nursing career?
For example, in my nearly 30-year career I have been blessed to work in labor and delivery, the Intensive Care Unit, home health, informatics, leadership, clinical practice, and ambulatory care. As a contributing writer for registerednursing.org, I now get to educate my colleagues and future nurses on current events and issues.
What do you like most about being a nurse?
Nursing is one of the most respected professions. What I love about nursing is that it is constantly evolving; there are so many things that you can do in the profession, so you don’t have to stick to one specialty. If there is an area of interest that is not yet created, you can create it.
