National Nurses Week [infographic]

This week is dedicated to taking a step back and appreciating the backbone of the healthcare industry: nurses. Nurses do everything from aiding the doctor to keeping weary patients entertained. It is no wonder why nurses are such amazing people. It takes a great amount of patience, selflessness, and passion to excel at this job. A lot of hard work and dedication goes into becoming a nurse, and whenever someone decides that this is the appropriate career path for him or her, they must understand that they are devoting their lives to other people and that, in turn, requires a lot of responsibility. So, thank you nurses, for looking out for us.

If that sounds like you, and you’re thinking about becoming a nurse, then you are definitely in luck. According to a U.S. News and World Report, nurses are in pretty high demand. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that 37,100 new positions for nurse practitioners will be available before 2022. The world population is steadily growing, and with it, the number of sick people that need to be taken care of. So if you’re looking for job security, the medical field is definitely where it’s at.

Whether this is something you want to do or not, always remember that nurses are giving every bit of themselves so that the world can be a better place for everyone to live. So next time you have to make a visit to the doctor, thank the people that assist you. [Happy Nurses Week!]
