Kristen’s Answer

I most enjoy the many different job opportunities and work settings available to nurses. Direct patient care roles are available in hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, outpatient clinics, doctors’ offices, and in patient homes. Nurses can also work in many roles outside of patient care. Some of these roles include clinical research, case management, data abstraction, education, and administration, for example. I can’t think of another career that offers such an extensive variety in job opportunities and work settings.

What I like most about being a nurse is caring for people and their family. In times some of the most difficult times in patients lives, you are there to assist them back to a state of wellness. Also I love to educate my patients about their disease process and treatment. The other thing that I love about being a nurse is that their are so many specialities that you can dive into. You are not limited in one place, you have the opportunity to do just about anything as a nurse. For example, you can work with any population from newborns to geriatrics, you can work in any setting; a hospital, school, insurance company, in a home, at a corporation, on a cruise ship....ect.

I love how nurses are able to combine a wide range of skill sets into one job. As a nurse you are often times juggling different tasks at the same time and different situations call for a different skill. You really incorporate science, pathophysiology, anatomy, creativity, resourcefulness, critical thinking, multi-tasking, emotional support, physical demand, coordination, and human connection all into one career!

I love the interaction with people from different walks of life! Those people are my patients. I'm an ICU nurse by specialty. Typically ICU nurses don't get more than 2 patients because we have to pay close attention to them since they are very sick. I get close to their families and learn about how they were before they ended up in the hospital. Often you want to be a part of bringing that person back to life or health. On top of all that, you get instance gratification of knowing you're saving a life.
Thanks for the information. Your career is very meaningful! Britteny L.
