What's It Like To Be A Registered Nurse?

A career as a Registered Nurse can be rewarding, flexible, and challenging. The majority of RNs work in acute care, providing direct care to patients with a variety of medical conditions. You should have a fairly good aptitude for math and science, good communication skills, and be comfortable working closely with people. Registered Nurses find work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, schools, insurance companies, and other healthcare environments.
