It ain't just fluffing pillows and waiting on doctor's orders.
Jobs in nursing demand a lot of the same things as physician jobs do - and then some.
Nursing jobs require not only treating patients who are sick and injured but also offering advice and emotional support to patients and their families, taking care of the paperwork (lots and lots of paperwork),helping doctors diagnose patients and providing advice and follow-up care.
That's right, there's a lot more to nursing than meets the eye. It's one of the hardest and most emotionally draining jobs out there, but it can be incredibly rewarding.
There aren't many jobs out there where you can actually save someone's life, but this is one of them. Got a weak stomach?
Then consider a different career, my friend. Working as a nurse means having to deal with terribly sick people - and that often involves various bodily fluids (yuck).
