Why a Degree in Nursing Will Allow You to Really Make a Difference

If you’re not keen on just getting any old job to make ends meet, and the idea of entering into the corporate world fills you with dread, it might be a good idea to consider a career that will allow you to really make a difference.  Nursing is one career that will enable you to do just that.

Make a Positive Difference

Nursing not only enables you to have a positive impact in the world and on the people around you, it also provides a decent wage that you can use to support a family, pay your bills, and buy a house.  Many idealists find it hard to find careers that enable you to have the best of both worlds as the majority of care giving jobs are either low paid or on a volunteer basis only.
Nursing covers many different specialties.  So whether you want to obtain a DNP (Doctorate in Nursing Practice) online through BradleyUniversity, or specialize in a specific sector such as mental health nursing, or midwifery, you will find there are plenty of alternative nursing careers available to you.  By obtaining the basic nursing degree you also have the opportunity to specialize at a later point if you do not want to make a decision on a specialty right away.

Help People in Different Sectors of Society

After obtaining a nursing degree, you would be forgiven for thinking that your next step is to find work in a hospital or doctor’s surgery.  However, as a nurse you actually have a variety of working sectors to choose from. 
You might like to work in a school or in the corporate workplace, helping you
ng people and employees to make a positive difference in their lives.  Or maybe you want to work with a sports team helping to ensure that the athletes on the team don’t succumb to any career changing injuries.  You may want to work in a nursing home and provide care for older people.  Or perhaps you want to work in a prison or psychiatric hospital providing mental health care to those who desperately need it.  Nurses have lots of options open to them, they are not limited to surgeries and hospitals.

Job Security

Whilst nursing is one of the best careers out there for people who want to make a true difference, it is also one career that offers job security.  It is believed that in the next two years, there will be a need for at least one million new nurses in the United States.  This is partly because of the number of nurses expected to retire, and also because of the introduction of the Affordable Care Act. You therefore have the opportunity to enter into a stable career, with good pay and a rewarding future.

If making a difference in life is important to you, it’s definitely worth considering a career in nursing.

  1. Great piece. I have heard that both nurses, and other health care options like aides for elderly are always in need.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
