There are as many kinds of nurses as there are kinds of doctors, from Family Nurse Practitioners (FNPs) and Mental Health Nurses to Nursing Administrators and Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS). Nursing can be suited to a wide range of individuals, so if your child is wondering why nursing is a good career and expresses an interest, you can help them by supporting the qualities and skills that thrive in the healthcare field.
Nursing is a wonderful field for children who are natural helpers, who care for people, and who don’t shy away from challenges when things get hard. If your child is inquisitive, caring, interested in biology, chemistry, or other natural sciences (and looking for a steady career with lots of growth potential), then nursing might be just the career path for them.
Pursuing a career in nursing, however, will require its fair share of education, training, and commitment.
