David’s Answer

Being a nurse is not a profession for the faint-hearted. Nurses deal with life, death, and everything in between.


But the job is also considered to be one of the most satisfying, in-demand, secure, and overall best jobs in healthcare.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nurses are responsible for assisting physicians in administering patient care, providing advice and educating patients on a variety of medical conditions, and giving advice to the patient as well as their family.
