Nursing education has seemed to increase these past few years. Most is due to the increasing numbers of nurse retirees and the rise of aged clients needing a proper nursing care. But it is also because Nursing is a noble profession. For some, it is their calling to be a nurse. It is their vocation. But whatever Nursing may be to you, to be a Registered Nurse, you must undergo rigorous nurse training that will make you a truly skilled, knowledgeable and caring nurse. The following are some ideas on what a nurse training is like this 21st century.
Many people from all walks of life have shifted their career paths into nursing. Expect that your classmates are of a variety of ages, races, and cultural background. This will enhance your transcultural education by simply mingling with your future colleagues and learning about them. As student nurses undergoing a nurse training, you have to be transculturally well-versed to be able to adapt to different personalities brought about by different cultural backgrounds. Flexibility is a MUST trait for a nurse.
There are more than 3,000 nursing programs spread out all over the United States that you could choose from. There are several types that are being offered in the USA from Diploma Nursing to Baccalaureate Degree to Masters Degree as well as Doctorate degrees. You can even train part-time or full-time but it is highly recommended to take up full-time nurse training so as to focus well on gaining a lot of medical and nursing knowledge, skills and right attitude.
Nurse training can build confidence. The training is taught both in theory and in practice. Professional nurse or medical lecturers and clinical instructors guide and assess students’ progress along the way. As a student nurse builds confidence with herself, she is also preparing herself for the long haul of helping her future clients build confidence in themselves in order to help them heal themselves.
In this 21st Century, we get to encounter many devices and technology in the hospital setting. Some of which look so complex that we might not even be sure we know what they actually do. With proper nurse training, you will be taught the intricacies of manipulating and caring for the hospital’s machines and devices that aid in the diagnosis, care and treatment of your clients. These devices are necessary to make work faster and more accurate thereby preventing medical liabilities.
As future nurses, you must be aware that this profession is not limited only to ritualistic activities in the hospital setting. A Registered Nurse must constantly upgrade herself through continuous education and if possible, she must expose herself to research and managerial work. Nurse training in the 21st century has integrated a multi-disciplinary approach that broadens the concept of nursing. Not only will the nurse study the basic principles of Medical & Surgical Nursing as well as Maternal & Child Care Nursing, but there are also specialized fields that are of major importance such as Psychiatric Nursing, Community Nursing, Leadership & Management Courses and the like.
If you are someone who is still undecided what you want to be in the future, discern it well and hopefully, you will one day be a Registered Nurse.
