12 Reasons Why You Should Become a Nurse by katty : June 26, 2018, 05:46:37 PM
Nursing is one of the most popular careers in healthcare, attracting those with compassion and a desire to help others through their work.

But caring for others isn’t the only reason people love this career so much. We have 12 other reasons nursing is one of the best careers out there. By the end of this article you might be considering how you’d look in a pair of scrubs.

You can complete your nursing training in less time than you think


Many think it takes four years or more to enter the nursing field, but it’s possible to become an RN in as little as two years. For example, the registered nursing associate degree at Eastwick College in Ramsey, NJ can be completed in as little as 18 months.

You’re not limited to just one type of work setting


There are a seemingly endless number of work settings for a nurse, so you can choose what best fits you. For example, you could work as nurse at a high school, a hospital, or even from home.

Nurses make excellent pay


According to the U.S. Department of Labor, registered nurses in the NY/NJ Metro Area make $90,840 on average; licensed practical nurses make $53,920 on average. Depending on your location and experience, the salary potential can be even greater.

The job benefits are great


While many industries are scaling back benefits packages for their employees, benefits in nursing jobs remain above average.

You can wear scrubs to work


It might seem like a small thing, but comfortable work attire shouldn’t be overlooked, and scrubs are known to be very comfortable.

Nursing can be an adrenaline rush


Of course, not every day is going to be thrilling, but in general, nursing provides stimulating work that keeps you engaged.

You can travel the world


As a travel nurse, if you’re tired of your current location or want to get away from cold weather for the winter, you have the opportunity to take assignments in new cities and countries, typically about 13 weeks at a time.

There are a wide range of specialties to choose from

There are so many nursing specialties that allow nurses to focus on what they love to do. For example, if a nurse discovers that taking care of adults is not personally fulfilling, they can pursue other opportunities as a pediatric nurse.

Experienced nurses rarely have trouble finding work


In most areas of the country, nurses with a few years of experience can often find a job with relative ease. And a nurse that has demonstrated proficiency in one speciality improves their career prospects in other specialities, allowing them to shift jobs more easily than in other occupations. “We’ve seen excellent placement results for graduates of LPN and RN programs in the past few years,” explains Emma Nabo, Director of Nursing at Eastwick College. “Demand in these fields remains strong as the nursing shortage is still an issue in many areas.”

Some nurses have the opportunity to have their student loans paid or forgiven


The US Department of Health and Human Services has federal loan repayment programs for qualifying registered nurses.

You’ll be part of a strong community

Nurses tend to stick together and share a common bond, whether in real life or online, so you won’t be doing it alone.

You can make a difference

As a nurse, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference in your patients’ lives, and your skills will be needed all over the world. A career in nursing provides a unique opportunity to help make a positive change in the world through your efforts. “One of the most rewarding aspects of the LPN and RN programs we offer is the heartfelt letters we receive from graduates thanking us for helping them achieve a fulfilling career where they really do make a difference,” explains Thomas M. Eastwick, President of Eastwick College.
