Career Tips

"How To Use A Nursing Degree...
Network with people in the health field and learn as much as you can about the medical field and the changing roles in nursing." (Nurse; 2014)

"Volunteer At A Hospital...
Do well in high school. Always do you math and science classes. This will help in college level classes. If you can, try to volunteer in the local hospital. First aide courses, and CPR are also helpful. Some people will go to a tech school, were you can come out and work as a certified nurses aide, and work on a hospital floor while in college. You can also seek out a job in rehabilitation/nursing home." (Labor And Delivery Registered Nurse; 2011)
