It starts in nursing school. Where basically you are self taught. That was my experience anyway. Oh, and did I mention the bullying by the clinical instructors who are waiting with baited breath to dock you in your evaluation.
I have a bachelor of science degree in another field. I have never seen such unprofessionalism as I did in nursing school.
My respect for the profession in general has dropped significantly.
he/she is "looking down" on people because she is trying to promote professionalism???
and it is spelled ADVICE !
This really seems like a stupid question to me. :icon_roll Would you buy a car labeled as a LEMON from Joe Schmoe's car lot or a car from a reputable dealer?
If you are looking to get a bogus degree, give me a few thousand dollars, and I can print up your very own diploma indicating you are a nurse.
Did you REALLY ask this question?
Short answer...only YOU can decide if it is for you. Unfortunately, there are some negatives with nursing that you will experience in school and on the job. It is a profession like no other. And I don't mean that in a positive way.
Now the good news....there are some wonderful things about nursing such as being there for someone in their time of need and a lot of flexibility in job choices.
