Wow, seeing this infographic from Maryville University’s Nursing Program
really made me think. Many times, we take for granted jobs done by people in the healthcare field. Coming from a line of family who has always been big into nursing (grandma, mom, sister, cousins….) I just always felt like there are tons of people out there ready to do this job and we’d never have a shortage of nurses of any kind. I now feel a little selfish for all of the times I told my family “Ehhh, that’s not a job for me. I can’t see myself doing that.” Yep, I have said those exact words MANY times in my past. My mom is a baby boomer while I am a millenial. Maybe it is time I rethink my future goals in life after my son starts school and actually consider nursing. It would be rather rewarding to know I can help those in the years to come when they need it most. Was this as much of an eye opener for you as it was me or am I just an overly emotional person? Anyone else think they need to reevaluate their career goals now?
