Nursing

  1. 1. Career in Nursing Kira Hanusz
  2. 2. Why Nursing? I’ve always been interested in the medical field, and nursing is huge in the medical industry. It’s a strong field that breaks off into many different specialties. Nursing would be a good job for me, and I would enjoy helping people to get better and stay well.
  3. 3. Nursing Nurses are responsible for caring for their patients. They may also need to present information, perform urgent procedures, manage and instruct other nurses, as well as designing and carrying out treatment plans for patients, assessing the patients physical, mental, and emotional health, and monitoring results of health treatment.
  4. 4. Working Conditions Nurses can work in many places, such as hospitals, nursing homes, walk-in clinics, prisons, and schools. Nurses jobs are both physically demanding, (walking, lifting, supporting), as well as emotionally demanding (working with severely ill or dying patients). Many work 35-45 hour weeks, often taking 12-hour shifts, and working both nights and weekends.
  5. 5. Qualifications After High School, nurses can choose to earn their degree or diploma in Nursing. For a Degree, Nurses can take a 2-year Associates Degree or a 4-year Bachelor of Science Degree. Earning a diploma takes about 3 years. Nurses must be good at listening, explaining, prioritizing, planning, paying attention to detail, caring for people, keeping records, and observing others to gather information.
  6. 6. Employment Jobs in Nursing are expected to increase by 19% between 2012-2022. The demand for health care is growing with our population. The numeric change is estimated to be 526,800 new nurses by 2022. Jobs for nurses with at least a Bachelor’s Degree are expected to be better than those without one.
  7. 7. Earnings Hourly: $26.24 - $34.92 Yearly: $54,590 - $72,630
  8. 8. Uses of Technology Technology is one of the biggest things in nursing. It helps nurses to see things they normally wouldn’t be able to see. It also helps them communicate faster, more efficiently, and more in-detail. These things are critical in any medical job.
  9. 9. Summary Being in the field of Nursing is a big job with a lot of responsibilities. You must care for patients, have empathy for families, and be able to handle traumatic events. It includes a lot of stress and pressure, but many people find the outcome majorly rewarding. Nursing is a great field, and I would love to go into it.
