Nursing as a career

Nursing is a challenging yet rewarding career.

Apart from the fact that nurses are trained to deliver a vital service to people in need of health care, they have a multitude of opportunities to further their careers and to establish a secure future for themselves.

There are all the different areas of specialized nursing e.g. operating theatre, child nursing, intensive care and trauma nursing.

There are positions in nursing education, positions at all levels of management, working for doctors’ practices, as private nurse practitioners working for their own account, representative and marketing positions, positions with medical schemes and managed care organizations.

Nursing also offers a passport to travel abroad, as South African nurses are highly sought after in several countries overseas.
