What Does a Registered Nurse Do

A nurse encounters many problems throughout his or her day, but they are always kept busy all. Nurses do so much more than just giving shots to the patients. Nurses work in much more places than in the hospital, they work at clinics, schools, prisons, and much more. They treat patients from all different ages. Nurses keep record of the patient’s health, give medication, and they try to understand new technology and tools.

Education

Nursing school and training takes a lot of work and effort but it all pays off at the end. There are many degrees that you could take in order to become successful. You could have an associate’s degree which takes 3 years and that is offered at a community college. After that it’s optional to get a bachelor’s degree which takes 4 years to complete and it’s offered at universities or colleges Also it is recommended to take a summer job at a health care center or at a hospital so it could enhance your nursing application.
