In this profile:
Nursing is a much needed occupation in South Africa. Government and private medical institutions alike are in dire need of more nurses. More nurses would mean more efficient, better run and better care in all medical facilities. But. And this a big but. This isn’t something you should do just for the sake of it. You need to have a passion for people and a desire to care for them. Anything less and you could end up pretty unhappy. Job shadow or chat to a nurse to see if it really is something you could do.
Nursing requires an immense amount of dedication to learning, treating and caring. Nurses are the backbone of the Health Sector; everyone needs nurses. Doctors need nurses and patients need nurses. Nurses, no matter how long they have been practicing for, have to constantly update their knowledge and procedures. Therefore, you never stop learning. An interest in academia will help you achieve your qualification and ensure you constantly learn more about your field as you work.
