Many people go into the field of nursing without knowing many of the facts that are presented in this infographic. The thing is that I think each of these things is very important for any aspiring nurse to know.
For example, it is important to know about needing continuing education credits, because I honestly didn’t know this when I went into school. Another thing I never knew was that West Virginia was one of the states that pays the lowest wages to nurses. I work in West Virginia, so I guess there is proof that I love my job and I am not doing it for the money!
One of the most important points that this infographic makes is that there are many opportunities for nurses. You don’t just have to be a nurse in the hospital, which is what I always thought was the case until I started nursing school. There are so many different things nurses can do! Nurses can be teachers, doctors, managers, and even legal consultants!
