What I learned from this project

After all my research and interview I learned that this is a very prestigious professional career for those who are hardworking and willing to be dedicated to their job and helping others. It can also be very stressful and physically and emotionally draining. But if you want to help people and their families and do your job to the best of your ability it is a great career to get involved in because it pays well and there are many promotional opportunities. Becoming a registered nurse is a great way to give back to others and their families.
