Nursing involves the care of people throughout the continuum of life and provides an essential service to humankind. As career professionals, nurses improve the quality of health care delivery. There are many positive aspects of being a nurse. There is nothing more rewarding than a patient giving thanks and telling you how much you have helped them. Also, there are so many opportunities and career paths that are available for Nurses. Nursing offers opportunities from bedside practice to the president or top administrator of a healthcare organization. Clinical specialist, nurse practitioner, nurse administrator and nurse educator are just a few examples of the variety of opportunities awaiting you in a nursing career. Nurses are also appointed and elected to influential government positions. If you choose nursing, you will discover a career filled with personal and professional rewards. There will be even more opportunities in the future, as the entire health care system transforms because of new technology, changing population demographics and many other factors. The rise in health care needs, combined with a dwindling supply of nurses and an aging nurse population (the average age is 44), is putting the Nurses in the driver's seat when it comes to the job hunt.
