    Career Goals Nursing

    Albert Said:help writing a 200 word nursing career goal essay.?We Answered:The subject of your paragraph went in too many different directions. You listed the following attributes: strong, dedicated, committed, hardworking and responsible. Then you failed to give any details of why these words can describe you. You finished with a description of yourself (very, loving, gently and caring) without connecting that description to what you had already listed. I think what you are trying to say is that you are both a dedicated and nurturing person. Dedicated describes all of the following: strong, committed, hardworking, and responsible and...

    Home Nursing Careers

    Nicole Said:what are the career opportunities in home nursing?We Answered:Here in California people usually train as a CNA (which is a prerequisite) and then study to become a home health aide.

    Nurse Practitioner Career

    Jacqueline Said:orthodontist vs. nurse practitioner. Which career path is better?We Answered:Jobs aren't all about the money. They're totally different. As an orthodontist, you'll be spending time in people's mouths a lot, overseeing a lot of physical manipulation of the mouth (or, in a very small practice, actually performing it) and working with a young set of patients. As a nurse practitioner, you're dealing with overall health, not physically manipulating anyone at all (unless you work in an ER) and working with a set of patients that can range from general to kids to old people. Are you really picking...

    Nursing Career Education

    Daryl Said:What education is required for a psychiatric nurse practitioner career?We Answered:You can't be a NP without going to graduate school. A psych undergrad or minor is not the same as an NP program. Starting in 2015, the minimum educational requirement for NP certification will be a Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP). Right now it's a Masters level education. And just in case you aren't clear, "certification" as a Registered Nurse means you have worked for at least a couple of years in your given specialty area and taken a comprehensive exam by an accrediting agency in that specialty. Your title...

    Edith Said:A career in psychiatric nursing?We Answered:I have been a nurse for 8 years and I have worked on a few psych floors. I really find them boring, there isn't much "nursing" involved.
