Suzanne’s Answer

Hi Jessica,
This is Sue and I retired from nursing after working 35 years as an oncology research nurse. I became a nurse in my mid-20's after first studying for a career in music. I found that I wanted to work in a field that offered me a sense of doing something to help others.
When I was very young, I had written a personal biography. I was in elementary school I think. I had always wanted to help others.
Studying for nursing, training for nursing and then practicing nursing only validated my very early feelings. I was satisfied on a personal level, an intellectual level and was always compensated well enough to support my family.
I hope this answers your question!
Best,
Sue

Diane’s Answer

Hi,

My aunt was a nurse and very influential in my decision to purse nursing. She instilled in me the most rewarding aspect of nursing is being would be able to make a difference in peoples lives. I have been a nurse for over 37 years, I am so grateful to have the opportunity to impact my patients and their family. As a nurse, I have held a variety of positions which provide the flexibility to continue to grow individually and professionally (medical/surgical, critical care nurse, nurse manger, discharge planner, and quality improvement coordinator, and project management). My true passion is quality improvement which still provides me with a sense of satisfaction - I am making a difference.

Hope this helps.

Diane

Janice’s Answer

Hi Jessica-
I have been a nurse for over 40 years and love the career.
I chose nursing because I wanted to teach and because I try to be healthy.
If you want to help people then nursing is for you. You will assist people through wellness and grief and loss.
There are so many opportunities in nursing. You can work in an office, a clinic, a rehab center, a hospital and many more settings.
There may be some shift work, weekends and holidays also that you need to work in your schedule.
As with any position, you need to balance your career with your home life.
Good luck to you!
