Are you interested in a career that's meaningful and challenging with a great salary, benefits, and opportunities for advancement? You should think about becoming a nurse! No segment of the economy is growing faster than the healthcare industry, and nurses have more options than ever before.

You'll start by learning about the skills and prerequisite courses you'll need to qualify for nursing school and the different pathways to becoming a nurse. Then you'll get an introduction to licensing exams and a crash course in medical basics: acronyms, medicalese, blood tests, and radiology—just enough to get your feet wet.

As you progress through the course, you'll learn about several different fields of nursing—from traditional bedside work to critical care areas, like the OR and ICU, to lesser known branches of the field, like nursing informatics. Basically, there's a nursing specialty for everyone, whether your dream is an adrenaline-fueled job in a fast-paced emergency department or a desk job working for the government. You'll also gain information about what you can do with a graduate degree in nursing, and take a quick peek at some of the other medical positions you might be interested in, like radiology technician or physical therapist.

Along the way, you'll read actual interviews from nurses currently working in the field, and learn about basic clinical skills to put you ahead of the game for nursing school. By the end of this course you'll know what it takes to become a nurse and what kind of opportunities are out there, and you'll even have a foundation of basic medical knowledge to build on. If you've ever thought about nursing, now is the time to find out more!
