It can change according to what type of nursing you do. Perioperative nursing is super busy in November and December and slows in January. But in the last few years, we all have been short-staffed and overworked as have every unit with the pandemic. You can find jobs that keep you running all day or some that is a slower pace. If you want to consider ever being a CRNA (nurse anesth) you need to go into ICU for a while to get into the program. There is a lot of money in that and the job is a good one as far as workload. I would highly suggest it!

Hello, well it really depends on the type of nursing you do, everyone person is different and likes different things. For example a hospital nurse might work 12 hour shifts and only work 3 days a week but then you are working weekends and holidays as well on rotation. Some nurses perfer a more steady work schedule like in an office setting 8-5 and no weekend work. Then it also depends on what you find exciting - is working in a busy fast paced hospital, ICU, ER your goal? Is working in a more consistent slower paced office but also foucsing on general health and internal medicine your goal? Do you like more business work and prefer to do utilization management or case management? Nursing is great because it is truly a wide career field.

Thank you for the question!!

I feel when thinking about this as your job - It is important to remember you are in the field to help others - it is a very rewarding career you are help others and make an impact. It is a high paced job, always on the run and on the go - and you will be seeing new things and experiencing new things everyday. There will be difficult times too, as you are dealing with people that may be unwell, but having the patience and nurturing skills needed, again it can be a very rewarding career! Nursing is also a career that can be done virtually anywhere, so regardless of where you decide to live or move to - there is always a need for qualified nurses!

Emily’s Answer

The field of nursing is very popular and also varies greatly depending on your specific career goal. There are nurses that work in doctors offices who assist with checking in patients, taking vitals, and assisting with medical procedures (depending on the doctors specialty). There are also nurses who work in hospital settings assisting a wide range of patients, from setting up IV's, checking vitals, providing medication, and anything else that may be needed in an emergency setting. To see what specific RN's are tasked with daily, I recommend looking at different job postings where you live. You'll see a wide range of jobs for RN's and that no two jobs are the same.
