The website above "Video Advice from a Nursing Expert" is a five-series videos, who features Caroline Porter Thomas, a Registered Nurse and author who works in Miami, Florida. Caroline is passionate about empowering new and prospective nursing students and sharing a taste of what it's like to work in rapidly growing field of healthcare. In one of her videos called "Why Nursing Now", Caroline talks about the exciting opportunities that one can have with a Registered Nurse degree. Caroline says in her video "As a nurse, I've seen many opportunities come to me in all different kinds of ways. However, a lot of people just start college ask whether nursing is a good profession choice for the future and now". Caroline for a fact does see many opportunities as a nurse. Not also that, but what she also talks about is data from the US Bureau of Labor statistics. Registered Nursing tops the list for occupations that are slated to witness tremendous growth through 2022, with 19% more nursing positions. The growth rate is much higher than those projected for most US professions. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, one in three practicing physicians is expected to retire in the next 15 years, which in that case, it will drive the need for more nurses. As she says that the range of nursing specialties is almost as varied as the personalities of nurses themselves, so no matter what kind of person you are, there's a place of nursing for you. Caroline as an experienced nurse, just by having her nursing license, she has had many opportunities coming her way. For example, she was offered to apply to an insurance company and a job by a private aid company to be a manager.
What I think about the video "Why Nursing Now" is I definitely do agree that someone can have many opportunities with a Registered Nurse degree. I know I haven't experienced it yet, but I have heard it from other people, especially from my step mom because she is a Registered Nurse. Many jobs are being automated or delegated to personnel overseas at a dramatic cost savings. Nursing is one job that can't be outsourced. I mean like Caroline said, it doesn't matter what kind of person you are; there's a place of nursing for you. Nurses do exciting and amazing things every day. I personally think that nurses are some of the smartest people in the world. When most people think about nursing, they think the traditional hospital nurse. Opportunities in the hospital are large, and it's where over 60% of the nurses work. At last I liked how Caroline talked about her experience of being a RN and the type of jobs she was offered just by having her nursing license.
