Career questions tagged nurses
I have a question for nurses, What made you decide to become one?
I'm a highschool junior and I'm considering the career, but a lot of people say it's really stressful and difficult.
What is it like being a home health aide?
Hello! My name is Isabella and I am a current high school student. I'm conducting an interview with any professional in the home health and personal care aide field for a Foundations in Health Science Class project about careers! I have created a total of 13 questions. Comment on this post, answering all 13 questions to be a part of my assignment. What profession did you choose? How many years of college did you need to complete? What jobs did you work before you landed your present professional job? How can I decide if I should earn a Phd in this field? Were you in a college program? Did you have to pivot and go back to school at a later date? Did you shadow another professional in the field? Did you join any school clubs related to your current profession? Was there a particular subject that you struggled with during your school years? What skills did you learn or gain while pursuing your career? Was the career choice you have now the same from the beginning of your journey? Do you recommend looking at other careers similar to the one that I have picked? What important skills did you learn when first entering your career?

Which specialty of nursing did you choose, how did you prepare for it and why did you choose it?
Hello everyone! I'm a first-generation college student and CNA here in San Diego. I'm pursuing a nursing career and am convinced that I will be specializing in a branch of nursing (masters) in the future. Currently, I'm in the process of receiving a general degree in math and science this fall! I will be preparing for the TEAS (AKA HESI) after the fall semester to apply for nursing school in Spring 2021, at two of my local community colleges! I have already planned on doing a bridge program at PLNU to get my bachelor's degree. I hope that you can all tell me about your experience the ways you prepared to pursue a specialty once you became an RN. Tips and advice are helpful! (Also, any tips on how to prepare for the TEAS and get a high score LOL). Thank you all in advance!! #nursing #college #healthcare #medicine #nurses #nurse
Will you give me some tips on how to improve my anatomy and physiology exams?
On my last question, #college #medicine I realized that I shouldn't give up on my dream of becoming a nurse. However, what strategies can I use to do a good performance in my exams? should I read my notes every 15 minutes per day? or maybe read them 40 minutes per day? or what kind of strategies would you recommend me? I really need help to improve my score in my exams. #dreams #nurses #2020 #HELP #2023 #exams #books

How do you keep yourself motivated when a task gets hard?
I am asking because hard work really does pay off and I know being in the medical field isnt always easy, I am just curious as to how these doctors and nurses keep themselves going so they dont give up on a more difficult task. #doctors #nurses #medicine
Best study strategies in Nursing School?
I do not have the best study strategies currently, but they have gotten me this far. I will be attending nursing school this fall for the ADN program. I will pursue a BSN, and eventually would like to pursue a degree in Nurse Midwifery. What are some of the best study strategies that worked for you? How did your study strategies differ before you were in nursing school. Did you have to dedicate more time and did your social life suffer? #medicine #nursing #healthcare #registered-nurses #pediatric-nursing #nursing-education #nurses
Is Physical Therapy a good career choice?
I love to work with people, since I'm a people person. My father once recommended me to become a physical therapist, since i read so much on muscles and know how to fix knots in the back and helped his knee get better with physical therapy at home. (He was kind of my test subject to test my new techniques on haha!) My mother also works in the medical field as a Nurse Manager/Nurse. She of course recommended me to become a physical therapist also since the profession requires a person to be good with their hands but also have good communication skills (I have both). So I don't know I really like the idea but I'd like some more information on it and everything I already started studying on it. #college #medicine #college-major #healthcare #physical-therapist #physical-therapy #nurses #scientists #personal-development #career-details
