Nursing

Do you love helping people? Are you a people person who enjoys working around others in tough situations? Nursing could be for you. Nurses do the bulk of the direct patient work in hospitals.

Skills for nursing include everything from patience with others to strong mathematical competency. Science and math classes are required as well as classes that deal with the human body. It is not uncommon to take anatomy, physiology, cell biology and even chemistry along this career path.

Nurses can take a 12-month diploma program to become LPNs, or graduate from a four-year college and become a registered nurse, the highest level of nursing. Nurses are in all fields in medicine. There are nurse anesthetists, psychiatric nurses, community nurses, trauma nurses, surgical nurses and even traveling nurses. The average salary of a nurse varies, from low $30,000s to six-figures for RNs in areas with a high cost of living.
