My Plans After High School
After receiving my high school diploma, I would like to purse a career in the medical profession specifically; I would like to become a Registered Nurse. A nurse is a profession that provides care for sick, the injured and other people in the need of medical assistance. Nurses also work in healthy insurance companies, research institutions and pharmaceutical (medicinal drug) companies. According to Segovia Bain “nurses record patient medical histories and medications, operate medical machinery and help with follow up care and rehabilitation (World Book Student). This career path interests me because of the educational training requirements, working conditions, earning potential and future employment opportunities. Nursing began as practice reserved for men. The first nursing school was established in India in about, 250 B.C., but it wasn’t until the 1800’s nursing education was primarily received from hospital than colleges. In this time, now student mostly dustings and doing dishes. They worked 10 to 12 hour shifts. Later, responsibilities like sterilization of the equipment, and like cleaning rooms or needles. By the time World War II started , nurses were removed from the hospital, to bedside by wounded soldiers. In the 1980, started a need for travel-nursing agencies has started, which made numerous job positions. “Registered nurses is expected growth, more by the year 2014” (What comes to mind when you think of nurses?)
Registered Nurses mostly have an associate degree. The curriculum for this degree includes, commutation, and organizational skill to coordinate, supervise, and manage or train other to accomplish goal. Registered nurse’s jobs duties also include developing day-to-day nursing care plan for both in the hospital and for care. “Employees in these occupations unusually need one or two years of training involving both on the job experience and in formal training with experienced workers “ (On*net).
