Stephanie’s Answer

Nursing is a job that is in very high demand, especially with the pandemic currently happening. There are many levels to nursing, and depending on how far up the ladder you want to go, you'll have to stay in school for a certain amount of time. The fastest way to get into nursing is to take a 4-12 week course and certification test to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). No college is required, so you could do this right after finishing high school. However, if you have the time/desire, you can take longer educational programs and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Registered Nurse (RN), or Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). This website is very helpful in understanding the educational requirements, job growth outlook, and salary potential of each level of Nursing: https://nurse.org/education/nursing-hierarchy-guide/#:~:text=%20Nursing%20Ranks%20%26%20Levels%20Explained%20%201,through%20the%20state%20board%20of%20nursing...%20More%20

Currently nursing jobs are available in all fields of nursing. I would recommend determining what nursing field you want to pursue and look into positions that are available in your area. There is a lot of nurses who are leaving their current positions and are starting to be a traveling nurse. I worked in a hospital setting and wanted to travel but family obligations came first. I would recommend talking with nurses in your area and determine what area you are interested in pursuing in nursing and then go for it!
