Practical nurses have the privilege of caring for the sick and elderly in a wide range of locations, performing an equally diverse (yet very important) range of duties. Typically PN’s can earn their certification and begin working in the field in as little as one year. That means, if you’re a brand new nursing student keeping an eye out for potential job opportunities upon graduation, the time to start making some decisions is now! Before you know it, you’ll graduate from school and be ready to begin your exciting new career as a nurse.
Nursing: the Perfect Career for Non-Traditional Students
You’ve spent the first part of your adult life working hard. Getting a degree after high school just wasn’t in the cards for your life. Maybe you took a few classes after graduating, but never had the chance to finish. Life happened, and you had to be responsible to meet those demands. Or, maybe you just didn’t know what you wanted to do right after high school. After a period of time, it just seemed too late to go back to school.
When it comes to choosing a career path, some people know right away what they want to spend the rest of their lives doing. But, for others, the decision can be a little more difficult to make. The journey toward a new occupation can be a difficult and costly one at times, so once you decide on a career direction, it’s important to be prepared for what you can expect along the way.
