Brittney’s Answer

It's important to consider your values and what success means to you when making this decision.

Write down:
1) Your top 3-5 values (both personal and career-wise)
2) Write your own definition of success. What does success mean to you?
3) What makes you want to succeed? What is it that motivates you?
4) Now write why each these things (#3) motivates you to succeed.

Now that you've defined what drives you internally and your ambitions, this allows us to narrow down options and identifying the right career, for you personally, in nursing to choose from.

Now, list your top 5 areas you'd like to focus on.
I recommend choosing those you find most interesting/fulfilling (Ex: Emergency Room RN, Telemedicine RN, Geriatric Care, etc.).

Nursing is a tremendous field as there will always been a need for RN's world-wide. Nurses save lives, and that is very powerful. It's a fulfilling occupation that will lead to both personal and financial success. I am rooting for you and thank you for your dedication to keeping the world healthy!

Thank you so much Brittney Delfin for answering my question, it was very helpful!! -Jordyn F. Jordyn F.

I’m so glad you’re interested in nursing! As a physician, I work with nurses all the time. Basically, wherever there is a doctor there are nurses behind him or her keeping the healthcare team functioning like a well-oiled machine! When considering what kind of career you want, Start with what kind of patients you want to see. Do you want to see really sick patients? Because in that case, you should consider being an intensive care nurse. Do you like working with kids? Consider working in a pediatricians office. Do you like taking care of the elderly? You can work in a retirement home or in a geriatrician’s office. Nursing is a broad an amazing career. I wish you the best of luck!

Kerrie’s Answer

There are just too many nursing careers to list. I would suggest googling specific terms such as "nursing careers", "nursing", and "nursing jobs" to see what is out there that may interest you. Depending on where you are in the process of nursing education if you have not completed your degree yet, there are sometimes opportunities to do internships or externships in particular areas that you may find interesting . Also, if you are just starting your education into a nursing degree, you can always become a CNA in an area that interest to learn more about nursing opportunities in that area (e.g., ED, ICU, Med Surg, OR).

Thank you so much for the answer Kerrie Chambers, it was so helpful!! -Jordyn F. Jordyn F.

Jessica’s Answer

There are almost too many fields of nursing to answer your question easily. it is most common to think about nursing in a hospital, and within a hospital you can work with any age population and even specialize with cardiac, surgical ,orthopedic, mother baby, labor and delivery, etc. There are even more jobs outside of the hospital. I myself have works as a nurse on an ambulance for a critical care transport. I have friends who work in research, some work as case managers helping patients remain compliant on medication. There are still School nurses take care of public health in school-age children. There are public health nurses who help with all different populations. There are nurse educators who teach other nurses. I'm sure I've left out some. And don't forget you can always get a graduate degree and that opens many more Fields up for you. I tell everyone nursing is a field where you will never run out of work.

Thank you so much Jessica Mullenix!! Jordyn F.

Rachel’s Answer

I am biased since I work at cancer center, but you should look into a career as an oncology nurse. These healthcare workers are intelligent, motivated, and play an integral role in caring for very sick patients.
