If you’re interested in Nursing, or already specializing in the field, take a look at 10 most profitable business ideas for nurses to learn how you can expand your skills and knowledge.
I’m a journalist and don’t have much of a science or math sided brain, therefore, majoring in anything in the medical field while in college was out of the question for me. I do have a number of relatives and friends, however, who are in the medical field and specifically in nursing. I have nothing but respect for them after hearing many stories of what they have to endure on a day-to-day basis. It seems to me the job can eventually wear even the strongest minds down after many long hours, overnight and holiday shifts, and a fair share of unruly patients. Even though it doesn’t look like the most glamorous job, there’s a large and constant demand for nurses around the country and world. In my home state of North Carolina alone, there are many competitive nursing schools and programs where students are putting their best foot forward in hopes to gain a spot. There are also many hospitals, so the chances of getting that first job out of nursing school are very strong.
Another pro of the nursing field is that there’s a huge range of specializations. Here’s a list of the 7 happiest highest job satisfaction nursing specialties to prove it. If you love kids, there’s a range of pediatric-focused positions. If children aren’t your thing you could be a nurse educator, a legal nurse consultant, or a military nurse just to name a few. As you see, the possibilities are extensive. On top of the many focuses, nursing offers a competitive salary, and I’ve never heard anyone complain about more money. While location affects salary, according to PayScale, entry-level salaries for a Registered Nurse (RN) can range from $45,000 to $86,000. The national average for an RN is $60,000. However, if working in a hospital or working for someone else aren’t your thing, but you’re still interested in nursing there are still options for you to earn money in the field.
