It was always drilled into me by teachers and parents that serving the ill and helping those who are physically incapable of doing so themselves gives you the greatest happiness. It fills you with a sense of satisfaction that’s hard to describe. We already had nurses in our family, so I was subconsciously and continuously inspired by them. That’s the reason why there was little surprise among my family and friends when I announced that I was planning to become a nurse quite early in my school days.
But there are other reasons why I chose to become a nurse. Besides its reputation as a noble career option, nursing also helps bring joy into the lives of those who have hardly any reason for cheer. You feel proud to be that happiness-inducing factor in their gloomy life.
My mind had veered towards nursing as a profession quite early in my life. The profession frankly has a lot to offer if you are proactive in searching for the right opportunities. Today, nursing and healthcare careers are attracting people in a big way as state-of-the-art technologies are being introduced in the profession.
If you are among the best, you will be in the envious position of being able to choose from the best nursing jobs. It will give you the chance to serve those who really need your help and support. Additionally, you can also aim to be an assistant to top medical professionals.
The best nurses not only get the best opportunities to serve people under top doctors but also get the best remuneration. Of course, being the best has another huge advantage. You will never have to face insecurity at your workplace. In fact, your employers will wish that you stay put, while many others will try to get you on their rolls.
My choosing nursing as a profession is also inspired by the fact that it gives me an opportunity to touch lives in a positive way. My grandmother used to say that every life is gift of God. I believe that as a nurse, I am in that special position to protect and nurture God’s gift. That feeling is truly special.
It is not that I was completely focused on becoming a nurse. I did weigh other options which would give me the chance to serve people in a same or similar manner. But I realized that it would have led me nowhere and would not have given the kind of satisfaction that the job of a nurse can give. Today, I am so glad that I chose to become a nurse. Of course, every day comes with different challenges but when I say my goodnight prayers, I know for sure that many others will be praying for me as well.
