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.
You could always work in an independent doctor's office, nursing homes or even private homes. You aren't limited but I'm sure they pay would be a lot less than if you worked at a hospital.
You could work in a school, college infirmary, nursing home, hospice care or sell Mary Kay door to door. Studying to be a nurse and having the degree and license is one thing. But people often chose one path and then follow another.
I have had six operations in the past 12 years. I have seen some fantastic nurses. I have seen a couple that I do not want to see again.
Hospital work is hard--pays good but hard. If you want better hours and more free time, look at one of the options I previously mentioned. I was only kidding about Mary Kay--there is always Avon.

I had someone recently try to discourage me from going into nursing school...I know there's pros and cons to every job, including being an RN...but why do you think she would feel so strongly against it? Are you a nurse and possibly hate it?

Don't you think we should care for our elderly at home, rather than send them off to nursing homes?
