9 Reasons to Fall in Love With Nursing

Kayla Baxter | NursingLink


#3: The Pace

No matter what kind of pace you like, there’s a nursing specialty out there that matches your needs. Whether you love the rush and adrenaline of the ER or you’d rather enjoy a slow, leisurely walk with a geriatric patient, there’s a way to do it.

#2: Getting Paid for Helping

Chances are you’d probably help that person choking in a restaurant for free by rushing over and performing the Heimlich. But nurses get PAID to help people out!

#1: Saving Lives

There is nothing quite like realizing that you’ve saved another person’s life. It’s humbling, awe-inspiring, and invigorating all at the same time. At the end of the day, you get to go home knowing that you gave someone else the gift of a lifetime. And then you get to go back to work and do it all over again. And again. How many people can say that?
