Exploring This Job

The Internet is a helpful research tool to learn more about nursing careers. Visit the Web sites of nursing programs and professional associations for tips on planning your education and career goals. In addition to your research, talk to people about your interest in nursing. Your school's career guidance counselor can give you advice on picking a nursing program and may even help you find contacts in the medical field. Visit a local hospital or other medical facility and ask if you can speak to a member of the nursing staff about his or her career. If the facility accepts volunteers, don't hesitate to sign up. Hands-on experience is the number one way to explore a career in health care.
