5 Reasons Why Nursing is different than other College majors…

 

1. You will have lessons that require hands on training.

Can you imagine having someone take care of your medical needs who has never practiced their skills before? Scary thought, isn’t it? Nursing requires more than just “book smarts”, it also calls for hands on training to have not only the knowledge of what skills are needed but also the practice to perfect them. With a variety of training, nurses are equipped with techniques they will use for years to come.


2. The skills you are learning are essential for your future career. 

While all majors will offer a foundation of skills for future career paths, nursing and medical related majors require very precise understanding of the fundamentals of nursing practice. It is critical to have a solid foundation, as each element learned will be intertwined with other practices and analyses. 


3. A state exam is required to become licensed to practice.  

Walking across the graduation stage and receiving a degree is an honorable moment to celebrate the culmination of hard work and dedication. For a nursing graduate, this is considered a stepping stone to bring them one step closer to their ultimate goal. Students in pursuit of a nursing license are required to take state boards, also referred to as the “NCLEX” to have permission to practice.


4. It is more of a calling than a choice. 

Nursing is not for the faint of heart. It is common to hear “Nursing chose me”, as many nurses feel they were called to enter the profession to help others. In addition to skills, nursing also challenges individuals on many different levels, including mental, physical and emotional.


5. Continuing education after graduation. 

Nursing requires lifelong learning. As the industry and practices evolve, and new challenges are faced, nurses must grow their knowledge to meet the needs of the population.
