A Day in the Life of a Nurse

A Day in the Life of a Nurse

Ever wonder what it’s like to step into someone else’s shoes for a day? Maybe you are considering nurses and want to get an insider’s view of the industry. Or maybe you are already a nurse and want to understand what a different specialty is like.

Here’s your chance.

Our Day in the Life… series will virtually take you into the homes of five different nurse (or almost-nurses!) and answer the questions you’re dying to ask. Why did you choose nursing? What is the best part of the job? The worst? What advice do you have for future nurses?

Our featured nurses are inspiring, intelligent, and accomplished. Looking for a great role model? Look no further.
