What is it like to be a registered nurse (RN)?

I would like to know more about this career. Thank you! #nursing #registered-nurses #nurse-practitioner #pediatric-nursing #nursing-education #trauma-nursing #home-care-nursing

Thank you comment icon Hi Nyquasha. I see that you tagged your question for the country Sri Lanka. We don't have many nurses from Sri Lanka on CareerVillage. Your location says "Laurinburg" -- do you think your question would be a better for to be tagged with "United States of America"? If so, I think we'll be able to get you more answers from our US-based volunteers working in the nursing profession. Jared Chung, Admin

Bradley’s Answer

It really depends what kind of nurse you would like to be. Like stated above there are many different types of nursing jobs. From experience, trauma nursing is the most exciting just for the fact that you just don't know what will roll in the ED. It could be anything from a gun shot, stroke, heart attack or someone strung out on meth that doesn't know planet they are on. There is the PCP nurse to where you give shots and take vital signs all day. I think it would really depend on what type of person you are. Are you low key and just want to be a nurse or do you want to be a thrill seeker and be a ICU or trauma nurse. Most nurses would probably say that during a shift they would want a different job but when the shift is over they would have a huge feeling of accomplishment and would not change anything.

Christena’s Answer

There is not a simple answer to this question. There are many kinds of nursing and places you can work as a registered nurse. You can work in an operating room, a health clinic or bedside nursing in a hospital. Within a hospital you could work in a Cardiac Catheterization lab, a chemotherapy infusion center, the emergency department or a surgical, neurological, medical or an intensive care unit.


One of the great things about being a nurse is the great variety of options for work. Some areas are fast paced and have sicker patients. Others may have more chronic patients that require more education and support.
