How to Become a Nurse?
Many schools offer degree programs that will prepare you for an entry-level position as a registered nurse. Most of these programs will give you a certification as well as some work experience, and this will help to prepare you for the demands of the nursing field.
A lot of people wonder if it is possible to become a nurse without a degree, it’s possible, but it would take an eternity to materialize fully. Also, the problem with not having a degree is that there may not be enough work for nurses in this field. And without a degree, your chances of getting a job would be slim. Furthermore, if you are considering becoming a nurse, you need to think long and hard about what type of nurse you want to become.
What Do Nurses Do?

In addition to caring for patients, many nurses may also work with patients in other settings. Nurses may be in the operating room when patients have brain injuries, during surgery or during maternity care. Nurses also work with patients with mental health, chronic, developmental, cardiac, pulmonary, GI, endocrine, etc. conditions. Nurses also help with keeping the emergency room clean and well prepared for emergencies.
