I struggled to find a good article about nursing and nursing schools and could not find one. So let me just tell you what I know and my opinions. You can find a short list of nursing schools here
The nursing profession comes with a lot of options. You are not necessarily confined to the typical role of a nurse in a sick ward. You can be an ER nurse if you like the high stress, high action environment. You can also go into administrative functions as a nurse.
You can also join a number of travelling nurse programs. I knew two such nurses when I lived in hawaii. Their living space was paid for, they had good jobs and there were probably other perks invovled. Because there is a shortage of nurses across the board, a number of opportunites exist for travel. In fact, as a I write this, the idea of travelling and getting paid well to do so, seems very enticing to me.
If you are a male, there is indeed a need for male nurses as well. You come with certain advantages when it comes to restraining out-of-control patients – especially in the Emergency Room. So this may be a good choice for you.
Whatever you decide – happy carreer hunting.
Here is that list of nursing schools again.
