Careers in Nursing
From the Set Getting Started
Nurses play a major role in the health-care sector. There are nursing occupations for people who love providing direct care to patients, for those who prefer to assist surgeons in the operating room, those who love to analyze health data in an office, and for those who provide health-care advice to patients on the phone. Careers in nursing are an excellent fit for those who like science, have an empathetic personality, and want to help others. Nursing is just one of 10 exciting titles in the Getting Started series. In this book, you'll learn about dozens of career options, typical education paths, ways to pay for training (e.g., scholarships, grants), methods of exploring the field while in school (e.g., summer camps, competitions, clubs, books, websites, tours, information interviews), and much more.
