“Caring is the essence of nursing,” quoted Jean Watson. I plan on graduating at Valencia College, where I will be receiving an A.S degree in nursing in June of 2013. The scope of practice for the Associate Degree Nurse is to provide and manage care for a diverse group of individuals, families and communities in collaboration with members of the health care team. The Associate's Degree in nursing program offers the quickest path to becoming an entry level Registered Nurse.
In the nursing field there’s many task and responsibilities you are required to do. Nurses responsibility is to treating patients, educate patients, and give emotional support to patients and their family and many other tasks. Nurses can find employment at various places such as, hospitals, nursing homes, jail house, and schools. Caring, sympathetic, responsible, determine when consultation is required, and emotional stability to cope with patient suffering. The top aspect that interested me was that nursing will grow by twenty-two percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than any other average occupation. Also, the salary caught my attention the average salary for a nurse is $58,740 annually. Furthermore, the two academic majors lead to math and science which is my two favorite subjects. As well as, helping others, providing advice, and provide emotional support interested me. Specific work responsibilities will vary from one RN to the next.
