â€¢ Gain some first hand knowledge of the field before choosing it as a career path
Experience the nursing profession through volunteering,Â talking toÂ friends or family involved in the field orÂ reading about it.Â Â This will help avoid disappointments about the basics of the career (what, how and when).

Well, nursing-nursery, it’s a common mistake. Did they know what they were getting into?
