There are quite a few people who would rather not look into registered nurse employment because they are afraid they might have to handle lots of blood or constantly be around sick people, which couldn't be further from the truth. In reality, registered nursing jobs come in all forms.

Some people work only with babies in the neonatal unit, while others choose work strictly in family physician doctor's offices simply checking blood pressure, providing medication, and keeping records.

What Exactly Is a Registered Nurse?

Becoming a registered nurse isn't as hard as it seems. All you have to do is get the motivation to go to school and obtain a registered nursing degree. Most of the time, you can get your foot in the door simply by possessing an associate's degree. The only downside is that the pay will be much lower, starting in around at $11.00 to $20.00 per hour depending on where you choose to work and in what state. Basically, a registered nurse is a caregiver. Registered nurses are to keep a detailed record of a patient's overall condition and list any changes that occur. They are to also keep a record of vital signs. Upon being assigned a new patient (especially when working in hospital setting), a registered nurse job consists of helping to establish a plan of care along with other healthcare staff and members of the patient's immediate friends and relatives.

Other responsibilities include providing medication by mouth and intravenously. Registered nurse employment also consists of communicating with immediate family and friends about the patient's condition. Regular communication must also be established with other members of the healthcare team including head staff members and doctors. A nurse is especially trained to keep the emotional needs of the patient, family members, and immediate friends in mind when discussing medical concerns. All information is to be provided in a completely detailed and sympathetic manner. Questions should be answered in a detailed manner as well.

Most Preferred Registered Nursing Jobs

If you have a registered nursing degree, you're already one step ahead of the game. One thing in particular that you may run into on a continual basis is different levels of pay. There is undoubtedly a huge variation in pay all across the nation. One job description might state that you will start off earning $19.00 an hour, while another may state that starting pay is no more than $11.00 an hour. This can become a great dilemma to a lot of people, particularly since a lot of individuals are interested in becoming a registered nurse because of the pay.

Most of the time, if you possess at least a bachelors degree, finding a high-paying registered nurse job won't be difficult. If you do start off making less than expected, try not to let it bother you. In time, most types of registered nurse employment positions provide raises.
