Since you’re thinking about entering, or have already entered, the nursing program, you obviously have a heart and passion for serving others. No one’s ever said that being a medical professional is an easy job, but it’s certainly one that’s fulfilling. In addition to being able to assist others in the miracle of childbirth or aid in a successful operation you’ll also get to work with amazing doctors and nurses and learn from these top-notch professionals no matter which hospital hires you.
Many hospitals excel in a single area or two, but some stand out above the rest, making them highly sought after places to work and be cared for.
