Registered Nurses provide patient care and educate patients about health care. They also provide advice and emotional support to patients and their family members. They work in hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing homes and the military. The hours are usually in twelve hour shifts. There is an unusually high stress level involved with being a registered nurse.
Why I picked this career
To become a registered nurse you need a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Most schools offer a nursing program including Washtenaw Community College. There are multiple schools with good nursing programs near us including University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University and Oakland University. We are lucky to live in a state with so many schools with such amazing nursing programs.
