The best part about nursing is the constant opportunity to learn and teach new things. Every day I'm challenged by the many different tasks that come before me, and that's what I love about my job. I was exposed to healthcare at a young age because my father works in a hospital. I knew that I wanted to do something in the medical field, but it wasn't until I volunteered in a hospital in high school that I realized I would really love to be a nurse. What I love about nursing is that it is such a hands-on profession. The relationship between a nurse and a patient is incredible. My favorite thing about nursing is being able to teach others. I have the opportunity to help my patients and other nurses. The Navy encourages furthering education so I am getting certified as a CPR instructor. Nursing is a very exciting career and there are opportunities in the field for every personality. Every nurse has different strong points; whether it's their bedside manner or superior technical skills, each one adds to patient care. Anyone interested in challenging work where you never stop learning should absolutely consider nursing.
