Finding work-life balance
Yet Yahoo recently ranked nursing the #1 career for work-life balance. Citing “flexible work schedules, which make it easier to put family first,” and “child care and educational benefits,” nursing tops the list of life-friendly careers. Teaching was #2, followed by Medical Assistant, Paralegal and Sales Professional.
What do you think of nursing’s #1 ranking? Do you think nursing offers a good work-life balance? Why or why not?
