One of the most awesome benefits of being a nurse is that you have options. There are hundreds of professions out there that are limited by how many hours you work, what time of day and the location. As a nurse you have the opportunity to try new things. The truth is, everyone needs nurses. Hospitals, nursing homes and people’s households. And with access to the world wide web, your job search is ten times easier than in the past.

Though nursing does require certain certifications for specific positions, overall, you still have a wide array of options to choose from.

Pediatrics:

We’ve all been there. Going to the doctor’s office or even seeing nurse can initially feel scary. That’s why working as a pediatric nurse takes talent. If you’re able to help a child feel more comfortable despite their health condition, pediatrics may be the job for you!

Which services match your skills?

  • Vital Assessment
  • Infusion Therapy
  • Nebulizer Treatments
  • Neuro-cognitive sensory assessment and fitness plan
  • Tracheotomy and Ventilator Care
  • Gastrostomy/Nasogastric Tube Care
  • Central Line Therapies
  • Vaccination and flu shots

Geriatrics:

Working with senior citizens also takes someone gifted. You must be attentive and be willing to go the extra mile to make sure the patient is taken care of. Another “must-have” is a personality that works well with people. Remember, you’re not just working for the patient, you’re working with their loved ones as well.

Which services match your skills?

  • Treatment for acute and chronic medical problems
  • Vaccinations and flu shots
  • Home safety assessment
  • Laboratory testing
  • Medication management
  • Nutrition assessment and diet management

Hospitals: Maybe the hospital is more of your scene. If you find that you have more energy at night and wouldn’t ever call yourself a morning person, then night shifts are probably the perfect fit for you! Staffing agencies are constantly looking for new talent to supply nurses to hospitals that need them most.
