Nursing Career Choices  –  Nursing is a profession filled with limitless personal and professional rewards. When choosing a career in nursing, you are choosing to spend your life giving, and helping others. As nursing is an Art along with being a Science, it requires compassion and caring and promotes quality of life from birth to death. Nursing is one of the most flexible professions around. Nurses can find work where and when they want, full-time or part-time. Some nurses take career breaks to raise a family or to go back to school. Most can easily start their careers where they left off, even if absent for years.

Today nurses have more choice where to work than ever before. As there is a significant shortage of nurses, once qualified most Nurses do not find it difficult to be appointed to an entry level position. Due to advances in health care it is also predicted that there will be a shortage of nurses for some years to come. This is also due to the fact that people are living longer. Qualified nurses with Bachelor’s of Science Degrees in Nursing (B Sc N) are pretty much guaranteed jobs straight from college, and can be assured of a secure career for the future.

The nursing field is composed of many different types of nurses, from Occupational Health Nurses to Ambulatory Care Nurse, Nurses who help with supervising patients to Nurses in high traffic hospitals.
