    I am a forth term nursing student, graduating in December. I really appreciated all of links you have provided. The link I loved the most was “10 Unexpected Careers for Nurses.” I love how the nursing field is so transitional and that is the reason I chose it as my profession. From hospital nurses to clinical researchers, nurses can always transition around until they find their niche. I recently had a disaster management seminar at the university I attend and I love how I can be in a profession that allows me to help people in need.

    This is a very good posting and I really appreciate you mentioning to us what other positions we could end up in in nursing. I may take a look at your book as well because advice from a seasoned vet like yourself will be very much appreciated. And not that I am looking forward to further education as far as NP or DNP but that list is also very much appreciated and from what I know the Madonna University DNP program is definitely worth a look for someone wishing to further their education.

    Nursing is one of the greatest profession and learning more about this career is definitely helpful in order for us to know more about health and humanity. Forums about nursing and blogs of nurses are already one of the resources to know more about this profession. Lately, I stumbled upon a hub about nurses and their favorite fast food. Check this out, eh.

    You mentioned online NP programs in your blog – I found a site that deals with LPN online programs that I found quite informative – thought others might be interested as well. Thanks for the great blog, informative reading!

    Great post!
    I'm currently taking prereqs for the nursing program at my school with a long term goal of becoming a neonatal nurse practitioner. The best program I have found in my state is switching this degree from a MSN to a BSN. The article you linked to really helped me understand the difference between these degrees.
