I wanted to take a minute to discuss this video on becoming an RN. The video itself covers a lot of ground, and easily stands on its own if you’re looking at starting an advanced nursing career, but there are a few points worth taking a look at here in writing, too.
The most important aspect covered in the video from the point of view of those considering a career change or advancement opportunity is demand. Nurses in general, and Registered Nurses specifically, make up the single largest group of health care providers out there. RNs significantly outnumber doctors, specialists, and administrative staff, to a large degree because it is nurses who provide around the clock direct care to patients in hospitals, Psychiatric facilities, nursing homes, hospices, and assisted living centers around the world. Demand for nurses is growing, and is expected to continue to do so – a point made here in the video, and a critical one for those considering the path for their life’s work. In this respect, becoming an RN makes good financial sense.
