Nurses work to restore health and wellness, prevent diseases, and help patients and families cope with illness. They are a critical resource in patient care because they consider the emotional and mental, as well as the physical, needs of patients. Nurses perform both lifesaving and routine duties, all of which are extremely challenging and rewarding. There is currently a shortage of nursing professionals, which means that this career offers lots of opportunities for those entering the field. Individuals will find many career paths, all with different education, training, and certification requirements.
