Think of a situation, where you go to a hospital and find only doctors all around… if you need something urgently, and the doctor is busy with other patients and there is absolutely no one for your help. Wouldn’t that be an awkward situation? Doctors alone can never manage a huge hospital; they require specialized people to help them with the equipments and to coordinate the patients in their absence. And these people are called the nurses.
Broaden your mindset:
Generally, when asked from a person, having a medical background, about what profession he/she wants to pursue in, without any delay the answer will come up… ‘I want to become a doctor’. But it’s time to replace that word ‘doctor’ by the word ‘nurse’. People are really not aware about the opportunities that are being offered in the nursing education, these days. There are many renowned medical institutes that offer nursing courses overseas, there is so much in store for nurses but still people have an urge of becoming a doctor. The profession of the doctors has come to a saturation point now, as more and more doctors and no nurse, is not a favorable situation for a doctor.
Know it well:
Various institutes providing nursing courses overseas have been ranked in producing world’s best nurses. They train them so well that after attaining their education they are eligible to work in almost any hospital no matter how huge or famous it might be. Generally people keep a wrong belief that becoming a nurse is a child’s play. This is really not true. Obtaining the title and the degree of a nurse is really difficult and many exams and practical tests have to be cleared.
As we say perfection and specialization is the key to success, same is the case with nursing. A nurse needs to be perfect and specialized in a particular field they want to practice in. With so many opportunities coming up, we need to broaden our mindset a bit and the present generation should and look up and reach out for the vast choices that we have today. Be it a doctor or a nurse, both work for a good cause that is saving lives. So equal importance should be given to both.
