Nurses are probably the most in demand group right now, and it is a career that is quite rewarding. Not only do nurses make good money, but they get to help people every day of their workweek, and often set their own hours. Although it might seem overwhelming to train do be a nurse, with an accelerated nursing program you can greatly cut the amount of time it takes to become one, and be at it in your new career in no time. I had a friend who took one of the accelerated RN programs, and she is now practicing at a leading state hospital, enjoying her life more than ever. Although there are other ways to be a nurse than taking an accelerated nursing program, why would you want to dawdle when you could be part of this exciting profession today.
Of course, accelerated nursing programs are not for everyone. To really get the most out of an accelerated nursing program, you must be sure that you have the time to dedicate to your training. For example, if you work full time it is probably not even an option. You simply will not have time for an accelerated nursing program and your job, and there are so few of us who can afford to actually take time off of working, with the economy as it is. The good news is that, even if you cannot take an accelerated nursing program, you will probably be able to take classes at night to fit around your work schedule, and work towards your nursing degree at your own pace.
Although an accelerated nursing program is far less commitment than a full medical degree, it is still a good idea to make absolutely sure that nursing is what you want to do with your life before committing to it. You might want to talk to some nurses and find out about their jobs. Because of the shortage of nurses around the country, many hospitals will be most accommodating if you wish to ask them questions or interview their staff. You might even be able to sit in on a class at an accelerated nursing program to see what it is like, or perhaps to follow a nurse around and observe his or her workday first hand. That way, if you do decide to get into nursing and pursue it as a job, you will be completely ready.
