So, do you want to go to nursing school?

Do you enjoy being around children?

Do you want to care for not just the physical, but mental and emotional health of students?

And are you willing to deal with parents? They can be difficult!

Can you keep your cool in emergency situations?

How do you feel about creating disaster preparedness plans, like for school shootings or extreme weather?

And how are your paperwork skills?

Would you prefer to work the academic calendar, with summers off? Or would you prefer the hustle and bustle of a hospital?

Hello, nurse! You're going to do an amazing job!

Hmm. Maybe nursing isn't for you. Maybe another type of medicine is? Like working as a pediatrician, or hey, maybe you like animals and want to be a veterinarian? There's a world of possibilities for helping people – go find what makes your soul sing!
