Heather’s Answer

Pros: 1. You make a difference in people's lives everyday. 2. There are unlimited jobs and specialties you can do as a nurse - if you don't like one area, you can move around to different units or specialties until you find what you like! 3. Job security - you will always be able to find a job.

Cons: 1. For most RN jobs, you start out on night shift. 2. Sometimes it feels like all you do is work! 3. You may experience emotional distress at times when patients don't get better or pass away.
