3 WORK SETTING  Generally registered nurses work in physicians offices, nursing homes, hospitals or from the homes of a patient  Depending upon which of these facilities you work in traveling and stress levels can vary  Rn’s can work 5 8 hour days, 4 10 hour days, or 3 12 hour days based on personal preference

4 PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS NEEDED  Must show care and empathy towards patient  Be emotionally stable and able to adapt to new challenges  Physical endurance and hard working ethic  Must have good communication skills

5 EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS  A bachelors degree in nursing is generally what most registered nurses have  Human anatomy, biology, and other science classes are helpful in high school  UW Oshkosh and UW Green Bay both have nursing programs

6 SALARY AND BENIFITS  The average entry wage of a registered nurse is $24.58  Hospitals employ more than half of all registered nurses and pay a mean of $66,220  The benefits package generally includes good insurance, increasing vacation time with seniority and sick days  In Appleton the median pay is 66,178  In Madison the median pay is about 60,000

7 EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK  Registered nursing is projected to grow by over 19% in the next 10 years making it one of the most in demand jobs

8 PERSONAL ASSESSMENT  I think that the flexible hours, relatively low level of college education, working hands on with patients and job growth rate makes a registered nurse a top choice for me
