Can I be a nurse and not work in hospitals?


If I was to go to school to become a nurse, am I just limited to working in hospitals? I don't really want to be in a hospital setting every day. Are there other jobs nurses can do.

    There are plenty options available as mentioned above. You can work inpatient (such as the hospital) or outpatient (which can be in clinics or even visit patients in their homes). School will provide experiences for you to find out.

    It's actually the other way around. Hospitals are not at the top of high paying jobs in the US, especially if you're a graduate nurse with no experience. Pay increases are based on years in the trenches (for lack of a better word).
