What if I can’t stand the sight of blood?

Not everyone is cut out for the emergency room or the operating room. Many nurses choose to stay out of the hospital, and don’t wear a uniform. There are so many options in the profession. One is bound to suit you.

If you want to be the boss, nursing has a place for you. Nurses are:

  • educators
  • managers
  • executives
  • entrepreneurs
  • lawyers
  • government officials

Nurses can also work with the police in forensics departments, on movie sets, as flight nurses in the military, and as expert witnesses.

When it comes to finding a challenging career as a nurse, the possibilities are endless.
