7. What advice can you give me about preparing for nursing school?

Please don't take this the wrong way as I'm not trying to be snarky, although in text it could sound that way.

NEVER attempt to go to an anonymous nursing website to get answers for your homework assignments. You have no way of knowing if the person answering you is even a nurse.

Also, members here don't typically take well to students coming to us to do their homework. If you tell us what your thoughts are, we will help you work through the process to get the answer, but you will have to show an effort to get there. In this case, interview someone who you know is a nurse in the real world, not the World Wide Web.

1. What makes nursing a profession rather than simply an occupation?

Overpaid naval-gazers with PhDs in "Nursing Theory," who tell you bedside care is the backbone of our profession, but haven't seen a real patient in 35 years. In an occupation I believe you are required to produce meaningful work.

2. What employment opportunities have you had(or plan to pursue)as an RN?

I have nursed in multiple specialties. Long-term I plan to pursue a career in EMS.

3. What trends do you see in nursing that will impact the profession over the next ten years?

We will have 10 more years to graduate "advanced" nurses with an ever increasing array of meaningless alphabet soup titles that nurses ourselves can't keep track of, much less our colleagues and the public. How we will continue to generate jobs for these people remains a mystery.

4. What are the benefits(if any)for having an advance degree in nursing I.e BSN

The hospital benefits from being one nurse closer to the goals of BSN 2020, Magnet Status becomes obtainable, it looks great on promotional materials etc. Oh, you meant benefits for me, the nurse? I get to do my same job for the same pay without getting fired.

5. What hidden challenges to nurses face that the general public doesn't know?

As a rule, the better/smarter/more capable a nurse is, the more frustrated they are by the nursing profession.

6. What keeps you in the field of nursing?

Being a flight nurse. It is only slightly like the rest of nursing.

7. What advice can you give me about preparing for nursing school?

Consider the multitude of other allied health options.
