About Nursing Careers


Hey guys,

I'm a freshman studying nursing this year. It had been a roller coaster when I decided to take Nursing (I didn't choose nursing at first. But then the demands and many other factors,...I am actually satisfied with the decision as the course is mostly practical). I'm simply troubled as I can't imagine what working as a nurse be like and what different nurses are like?

I heard of the term

  1. Respiratory nurse
  2. Cardiac nurse
  3. Theatre nurse...
  4. ....

But I have no idea the environment and the actions need to do in different roles of nursing. Where can I find the resources for reference?

Thank you!

Since you used the word "theatre" nursing, you are living in the UK. UK nurses may provide better information than the US based nurses.
