Nurses who got the world talking

There are so many brave men and women that spend their entire lives keeping us safe and out of harm’s way. The police force is there to ensure everyone is following the law, as well as keeping the bad guys off the street and helping anyone that could be in need. Fire crews are there to tackle any blaze that breaks out, helping save us when we’re stuck, and educating people on making their homes as safe as possible. So who’s missing? The medical staff, of course. From doctors to paramedics, porters to anesthetists, and surgeons to therapists – there are so many people working together to make sure we are as fit and healthy as can be. However, there is a group of people that are keeping the whole team together, the glue of the hospital. The nurses. They can be trained in all kinds of tasks, and are there to support any doctor or patient that might need their help. Although they might sometimes be overlooked as the unsung heroes of the hospital floor, these are the nurses who got the world talking.

Now, there are more than 2.9 million female and male nurses working in America alone. It’s thought that by 2022 the number of nurses will have grown to around 3.2 million thanks to the ever-growing population. All those extra people need extra care. However, choosing what to study can be a task in itself as there are more than 100 nursing professions to choose; this can be anything from working in the emergency room, lending a hand at the operating table, being there for patients in need of constant medical care, or even helping care for those with a specific illness. All these career paths come with their own set of training and can have their unique ups and downs.
