Lorraine’s Answer

Azusena,
My favorite part of being a nurse is the diversity, opportunities, and ongoing growth opportunities.
Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, I worked in public health. The job involved making home visits. My work involved pregnant women and children. I would receive a referral from the clinic regarding a pregnant teen or first-time mother. Then I would open a case and do monthly home visits, including education, assessments, and referrals to needed services. I enjoyed the job very much, and found it to be very rewarding. The nice thing about being a nurse is that you can specialize in so many different areas and learn about different specialties as you go along. In my current role as a family nurse practitioner, I work with older adults as well, and I find the work just as rewarding in many ways.

Mukuka’s Answer

A nurse is a healthcare professional who is trained to provide medical care to patients, promote health education, and work as part of a healthcare team to ensure the best possible outcomes for their patients. I love being a nurse because it is an incredibly rewarding profession. I have the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives and help them achieve their health and wellness goals. I also enjoy working with a diverse group of people and being part of a team that works together to provide quality care.

Ann’s Answer

After working in a lot of end-of-life scenarios, I know I have positively impacted family members' views on how they see the death process, the events surrounding end-of-life and how they have processed their grieving. From reconciling the decision to withdraw life-prolonging measures to empowering them to ease the suffering of their loved one, I know I made a difference in how they live with their decisions.

I've spent a lot of time working in less stressful environments as well. I love the teaching aspect of nursing...giving my patients the tools they need to get healthy and stay healthy. Whether it's in dialysis or mental health or emergency services, giving a patient a few digestible nuggets can make a huge impact on how they treat themselves in the future and whether or not they become ready to learn more.

Sara’s Answer

Hello and congratulations on choosing this path. There is so much that I have loved about being a nurse but if pressed I would tell you it is about the connections. Working in a dynamic, interactive people oriented setting is completely rewarding. The patients, their families and your colleagues add immeasurably to the richness of your life. Sure, sometimes interactions are difficult but they are the minority. I recall so many more positive people over the years then the ones that were less than stellar. If you are a people person this is a rich career. Have a great future!
