Seven Reasons Why Nurses Love Their Jobs by Michele Wojciechowski by katty : October 28, 2018, 05:08:13 PM
The beauty of nursing is that no two career paths are going to be exactly the same, which is why we get such a variety of responses whenever we ask nurses why they love being a nurse.

If you’re feeling a bit burned out in your current role or maybe just need some inspiration to remind yourself why you got into this amazing career in the first place, check out what some of your fellow nurses had to say about it.

1. “Nursing is a profession that keeps on giving, with endless opportunities for specialization. I became a nurse in 1982. At that time, the scope of work was much more narrow. Today, clinicians can choose exactly what kind of care they want to provide and where they want to provide it, such as in the home working with patients one-on-one.”
—Kathy Pfeiffer, RN, BSN, Director of Pediatric Clinical Operations, BAYADA Home Health Care

2. “It’s great to be a nurse in 2018 because the health care system in the U.S. is changing rapidly and nurses are in a position to not only be part of this change, but to be leaders. The opportunities for nurses at this time in history have never been greater.”
—Nancy Brook, MSN, RN, CFNP, Nurse Practitioner/Mentor, Stanford Healthcare

3. “I have never been bored as a registered nurse because I never know what the day will bring. With a nursing degree, you can go anywhere in the world and help anyone—it’s universal.”
—Kelly Hebel, RN, BSN, MBA, Kaiser Permanente in Aurora, Colorado

4. “I have been a nurse for 24 years and currently work as a pediatric clinical manager. It’s a great time to be a nurse because as technology advances, so does the profession. Better technology leads to better patient care, and when you can make a difference, it’s easy to love what you do.”
—Crystal Joan Lee, RN, Clinical Manager, BAYADA Home Health Care

5. “I appreciate the variety it offers. You can choose to nurse at the bedside, be a teacher and mentor, or manage in a hospital or clinic. You can roll out programs or coordinate patient care as part of a multidisciplinary team. I’m also grateful that I can be part of a dedicated team of people who all want the best for our patients.”
—Catherine Parsons-Goudberg, RNC, MSN, Roseville Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Northern California

6. “It’s great to be a nurse in 2018 because nurses are standing on the edge of greatness. The demand for nurses in the coming years is going to be incredible and will put us in a position to make positive changes for health care and our patients. The awesomeness of nursing is starting to be recognized by industries and policymakers that previously had overlooked us. We are starting to stand up and show our value in solving the problems we face in health care and innovation. The future of nursing is bright, so watch out!”
—Joan Spitrey, RN, MSN, CCRN, TheNursingTeacher.com

7. “It’s great to be a nurse in 2018 because in a world that is changing so fast, a nurse is sometimes the one person to hold a hand and explain all that is happening in terms that the anxious—and sometimes confused—patient can understand.

Nursing is as old as time and ever-changing to meet the needs of complex patients. Nursing is part of the health care team that has the skills and compassion to make even the scariest of situations seem better.”
—Kathy Reda, RN, BSN, Emergency Department, Newton-Wellesley Hospital
