<ul><li><p>Looking into a Career in Nursing </p><p>It can be scary to look at the unemployment rates when you are getting a college education. If </p><p>you are worried about your job prospects, it is important that you take time researching and </p><p>investigating which education paths can help you ascertain a job after graduation. </p><p>A nursing degree has become very popular in recent years because of the wide variety of job </p><p>opportunities that this education can provide. If you are interested in a nursing education, it </p><p>could be a great avenue to ensuring that you have job opportunities for years to come. </p><p>While you are looking through different nursing programs, you will want to look at jobs that are </p><p>associated with the specific program. Do not be afraid to talk to an admissions counselor about </p><p>the job opportunities that are related with a specific nursing program. </p><p>Understanding the Career There are some nursing programs that will enable you to earn a four year degree while others </p><p>will enable you to earn a two year degree. Deciding between the different degrees may take </p><p>some time and research, but each degree can provide you with job opportunities. </p><p>If you are interested in becoming a nurse, you should understand what a typical day on the job is </p><p>going to consist of. Although your days may differ from one another, there is often a common </p><p>trend in the nursing jobs that you will get. </p><p>You should understand that your shifts will probably be </p><p>twelve hours shifts. These shifts can be long and often </p><p>times they are difficult to get used to, but after some </p><p>time many nurses adjust and the twelve hours shift is </p><p>not as difficult as it was when they started. </p><p>While you are working, you will find that you are also </p><p>on your feet for the majority of the time that you are </p><p>working. Whether you are walking through different </p><p>patients offices or helping a specific patient, you may </p><p>not find much time to sit down. </p><p>If you do not think that you are physically capable of standing for twelve hours shifts on a </p><p>consistent basis, you should not be afraid to look for a different career. Make sure that you </p><p>understand what your capabilities are before you go into nursing. </p><p>Schooling Many people that go through their nursing education also struggle throughout the schooling </p><p>portion of their career. It is important that you know what your strengths are in school and how </p><p>to capitalize on your strengths while you are choosing your major. </p></li><li><p> A nursing education is going to emphasize the sciences. Understanding that you will be working </p><p>within the realm of health sciences throughout your entire career can be a great way to decide if </p><p>this type of education is going to be the best option for your </p><p>schooling. </p><p>Getting a nursing education may be the best way to get your foot </p><p>into a career that will have job openings for many years to come. </p><p>Do not be afraid to investigate your options to ensure that you </p><p>understand if this career choice is right for you or not. </p></li></ul>
