Hi Aisha,


The medical profession requires dedication, effort, discipline and above all, concern for the people and by your continued well-being. The beginning of the profession, is quite intense, the doctor begin your journey in hospitals and clinics (public, private and / or philanthropic) meeting a range of people who need specialized attention and care. The working day is intense, the beginning of the career requires organization and planning in health shifts, distributed by schedules, which requires disposal, willingness to learn and to help from the new doctor.


To the extent that the professional complete your residence (choose the specialization), he begins to meet not only in hospitals but also in private practice. In practice, the pace of work is less strenuous and intense, because a secretariat will be responsible for scheduling appointments in more specific and limited hours. In this way, the doctor will be able to leave the office at the end of the day, without the need to attend in shifts as in the hospital.


This is undoubtedly a necessary and important profession because takes care of what is most precious to the human being: your life !!


All the best!

I understand your concern and compassion for man-kind, and appreciate it! You will need this whether you became a nurse or a doctor. Both need years of education and additional clinical training prior to taking a licensure examination. Usually, a physician will go to college for 4 years and take sciences but can also have a major in something else that obtain a BS degree. Depending on your GPA (grade point average) acceptance into a medical school for an additional 4 years is necessary. Upon that graduation the graduate will began a residency program from 2-4 years in length, all dependent on the specialty chosen. After completing the residency, additional specialized train or certifications are needed for some specialties and sub-specialties. So after high school usually an average of another 10-12 years is necessary prior to working as a "doctor".
A nurse can graduate from a diploma or associate's degree program (anywhere from 2-3yrs) or from a college with a BSN (bachelor's in nursing). Once the national licensure exam is passed the new nurse can practice and also continue her education toward a MSN usually go 2 years, and will require more specialized training in the specialty desired to practice as a Nurse Practitioner. Of course one can continue and obtain their PhD. Many nurses start out in steps and progress in their career because sometimes employers will reimburse or pay for doing education.
Either path is rewarding, challenging, exhausting, and truly a calling. You must have it in your heart and your mind to truly make changes in people's lives! All the best to you in whichever path you choose!
