Nurses have plenty of options upon graduation. There are a variety of settings in which they can work, depending on their credentials. Many nurses seek hospital nurse employment.
Hospitals employ the largest number of nurses. Because hospitals serve entire communities, they generally receive a high patient volume. Nurses are the primary attendants to patients in a hospital, typically spending more time with them than the doctors, so hospitals must be properly staffed with nurses.
Most hospital nurse jobs are within a specific department. Hospital nurses may work in surgery, intensive care, maternity, pediatrics or other hospital departments. Hospital nursing is generally faster paced than other nursing jobs, because in a hospital setting every second counts. Nurses in a hospital environment must be able to perform their duties quickly and accurately. Because many areas have a severe shortage of nurses, hospital nurses often oversee a number of patients during their shift. They must be able to multi-task while still providing excellent care.
Hospitals are open all hours of the night, so candidates will experience irregular working hours and may be on call. Hospital nurse jobs are demanding, and candidates must be comfortable working in a high-stress environment, however, the career can also be very rewarding.
