Apart from academic qualifications, physical factors also play an important role. You must have good mental and physical health with no disabilities which may impair the quality of your work.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Nursing:
Studying this course will lead you to a fulfilling career. Being able to impact people’s lives for the better is one of the best thing you can do. You get to uplift patients with your kind words of encouragement, gentle attitude and caring heart.
Have you ever been to a hospital to visit a loved one and the nurse walks in the room to ask how is everything? Besides physical limitations, patients also need emotional support to go through whatever they are battling. Sometimes, that’s all they need to get back on their feet again.
Think you’ll only learn how to take blood pressure and stick needles on people’s arms? That’s only half the story. You will get to learn a variety of skill sets such as health science, how to operate advanced technology, dress wounds, respond to emergencies, learn the human anatomy, do health checks and many more.
“The trained nurse has become one of the great blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the priest.”
Important Note: If you opt to study a Diploma in Nursing and continue your degree at the same institution, you will most likely get a one-year exemption. This means that you can enter degree year 2 after diploma..
It is not necessary for you to do your postgraduate. You can opt to work straight after degree as well.
You’ll be a vital cog of the medical team, which will inevitably mean that you’re going to inevitably have long hours where you will lack sleep and need to study, sometimes simultaneously. You’ll have to be ready to work harder than you ever have
A nurse needs to be good with people, because he/she is the person who’s supposed to explain the complicated jargon that is medical terms to the patient, in a way that they will understand
Being a nurse, you’ll face patients much more than doctors, and their dissatisfaction when a medication doesn’t work or when their loved one continues to deteriorate. You have to be patient with all your patients, for the betterment of everyone!
