Nursing: More Than Just a Career

There’s a saying in hospitals and doctors’ offices that goes something like this: “Behind every great doctor is an even greater nurse.” While that might sound like a bit of an exaggeration, it reveals a real truth.

Nurses are the thread that keeps the fabric of the healthcare world together. If you’re passionate about caring for people, able to make quick decisions on your feet and want to start a career that’ll be rewarding on more than one level, then nursing might be right for you.

Why Should You Pursue a Nursing Career?

Everyone who goes into nursing gets something unique and rewarding from it. From the feeling you get with nurturing patients back to health to the salary, nurses get to do something they’re passionate about and get paid pretty well for doing so. We’ve listed some of the main reasons why you’ll love becoming a nurse:

Nursing Is a Purpose-Driven Profession

That’s an understatement. Nurses are a vital part of the healthcare system. They don’t just help doctors. They also listen to patients, learn their stories and fears, and make the medical process less stressful for them. Nurses spend much more time with patients than other providers do, often becoming their sole reference when it comes to care. To watch patients recover from a severe illness or help them take their first steps after an accident are just a few of the things that most ordinary people would remember for the rest of their lives, and that most nurses get to do every day.

The Job Prospects Are Excellent

Nurses are always in high demand. In fact, for roughly every three physicians, there are 10 nurses. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered nurses (RNs) is projected to grow by 7% by 2029, which is more than the average for all occupations in the U.S. Between working in hospitals, private practices, nursing homes and more, there are tons of job opportunities to be found in this field.

You Can Achieve Financial Independence

You’ve probably heard that physicians are paid well, but a nurse’s salary is nothing to cough at either. Of course, a nurse’s salary will depend on a lot of factors, such as their specialty, experience level and specialization, but most nurses have the means to become financially independent.

Anyone Can Become a Nurse

We all have an image in our minds about what a nurse looks like.

That image in our heads can be a bit intimidating. It can make us feel that nursing just “isn’t for us.” But that image doesn’t match the reality. With the right education, anyone who’s empathetic, has good problem-solving skills and has a passion for healthcare can become a great nurse

Because of that, nursing is getting more and more diverse every day. And that’s a good thing. The more diverse nurses are, the better the nursing staff as a whole will be able to communicate with and serve diverse patients.
