They advance the nursing possession by fostering higher standards of the job, and it represents the interests of registered nurses. Salary: In the beginning, you will earn approximately $43,410. In the middle, you will earn approximately $51,640 and $76,570. When you’re experienced, you will earn approximately $92,240.
  11. 11. Educational Route <ul><li>There are three educational paths that people may take in order to become a nurse. One of them is a bachelor’s of Science degree in nursing which can be acquired by going to a four year college. </li></ul><ul><li>The next career path is to gain an associate degree in nursing which requires going to a community or junior college. This degree will take two or three years to complete. </li></ul><ul><li>The last educational path that can be taken in order to become a nurse is to enter a diploma program through a hospital.

This relates back to my interests because I would be able to cure people, but I wouldn’t have the responsibility of diagnosing them. Emergency Medical Technician/ Paramedic They are people who provide immediate care to patients who are sick or injured and transport them to medical facilities. This relates to my interests, because it is a job in the medical field, and it also involves me being the reason why somebody lives.
  13. 13. My Shadowing Experience My shadowing experience was at the Federal Express Junior Achievement conference at Dowling College. At this conference, I learned about the importance of communicating in a work place. We did exercises where we weren’t allowed to communicate with each other. Doing these exercises, I really was able to learn how difficult things can be without communicating with others. I also learned about teamwork. Without teamwork, you won’t get as far in life.
