Yes it's hard but it's very rewarding and there are a lot of options. Hospital nursing takes time management, prioritization, and endurance. 12 hours shifts are long, but the nice part is to have stretches of time off. Office, outpatient and school nursing have more predictable schedules and allow you to get to know patients over a longer period of time. Procedure nursing can be nice, but short periods with patients & can have call schedules. There are a lot of choices with nursing. The school work can be a challenge and there is a lot of clinical time so really look at program requirements to make sure you can do it. I absolutely hated nursing a year after graduation but now I am 23 years into it and I am grateful everyday that I pushed through. I love being a nurse.

Erin recommends the following next steps:

  • Look at program requirements.
  • Take prerequesites.
  • Look into volunteer programs at hospitals or with nurses or ask to shadow a nurse

Nursing is the hardest bachelors degree you will ever earn, also the nclex board exam is hard too. Know this- all your hardwork and effort you put in nursing school and studying for boards pays off. Being a nurse is rewarding, you feel a sense of purpose everyday. There will be days where you will be scared to go to work, worry that you missed something, anxiety will kick in as a new grad. As time goes by and you have experience and confidence you will be succeed. As a nurse you will always be employed. Nursing jobs are everywhere around the world. Main thing is if you have the passion to take care of people and put safety as prioity you will make a great nurse. There is nurse burn out at the bedside but with the base of a nursing degree , the world is yours to conquer. I get bored really easily and nursing is the best career for me. So many roles we can jump into with the right training. Good luck!
