How To Become... A Nurse
Created by: Shawn Sarmiento
Head start Education on Nursing
Here are some tips to be more successful in being a nurse. First you can go to these classes while you are in high school for a head start in nursing.
Take Math for 3-4 years (including algebra and geometry) because you will need to find a sum, difference, product, or quotient when finding how much grams to inject to the patient. You wouldn’t want to out to much of the medicine in the patient.
Take English for 4 years which is required.You will need this class to speak English if you didn’t know how to speak it already.
Take Science for 2-4 years and take Social Studies for 3-4 years. You will need this to know about the body parts.
Take foreign language classes (advised but not required for your head start on learning nursing) so you can speak a certain language so that your patient is more comfortable with you since you know how to speak their language or dialect.
According to my interviewee, she says that you also have to have a Bachelors degree in Science for Nursing.
- I would also advise you to read books about the human body while still in 3rd to 8th grade so that you at least know what each body part is.
Casual day to day schedule of a nurse
A regular nursing schedule is pretty easy if you think about it. While interviewing my interviewee she says that you really just have to wake up, go to work, work for the time that you were assigned to, and come back home. But I can show you what my interviewee regularly does when she goes to work.
- First she wakes up from her slumber.
- Next she gets ready for her day/night.
- Then she drives to the hospital that she was registered in.
- She then goes to work and clocks in (it means to swipe her/his ID on a machine to get in.
- Next she gets report from the out going shift.
- Finally, she can start working on her patients.
