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?

Why do you love nursing? Tell us in the comments below!

    I love nursing because I care about people and I care about other people feelings. Sometimes I even put other people's feelings before mine. I love learning new things and using my mind to figure out stuff. Being a nurse requires you to take challenges and to use my mind alot. I pray to God that I can become a nurse one day. I respect everyone and most of the time I recieve that same respect back. At the end of the day I'm still here and it is all thanks to GOD who gives us the most and the best LOVE we can ever receive. Have a HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

    Thank you for reminding me about the wonderful man that put up with me 30yrs. ago while in nursing school. As I continue to adore being a nurse and am sure there would have NEVER been a better job for me, this same man continues to love and support me. Thank you again for your attention to the important things in a nurse's life.

    Wow. I felt uplifted after reading the article. It's a nice one and true indeed! I never thought i'd fall in love with the job either until i did it. Unfortunately, i'm not into hospital work right now that's why i miss it so much... Thank God for NURSING!

    I work with children in a behavioral hospital and they are always happy to see me, they want me called for a problem and they always want a hug! Knowing I have made a small difference in each child I touch makes me glad that I am a nurse.

    Congratulations robshe377!! The best thing about nursing for me has always been making a difference that I can immediately see - not like teaching, where you never get to see the change you make in someone.

    I couldnt resist sharing after reading your comments....I'm not in nursing yet...but I have been a CNA and I loved it. I had to leave the profession for personal reasons and have been out of it for about 10 years. I am going to go to RN school and finally be able to fulfill my dream of being a Registered Nurse! I'm so excited and I know it is going to be a long ride. I am now in my 50's and am looking forward to being able to learn the profession I have always wanted to do. Praise the Lord for opening up the door and calling me into Missions as a nurse!

    Job satisfaction. I love the feeling I get after helping patients with different challenges. I know in my heart that I make a difference in my patients. To those who are terminally ill, a hug or just holding hands speak volumes.

    Making a difference in everyone's life
    Being able to provide hands on care to the living or dying, providing any type of care to the patient or their family
    One to one with doctors
    Be needed
    Seeing immediate change when preforming a task
    Enjoying my time with patients for the last 25 years and hope to continue same
    Feeling blessed to be able to do what I do
