Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists are among the most highly-paid nurses, and are in great demand; unlike most positions, these nurses have very little patient interaction but are instrumental in the conducting of successful surgeries (Santiago 2010). Nurse practitioners are one of the most common types of nurses, providing general primary care in a variety of settings, with earnings near those of CRNAs but with greater patient contact, making it a more rewarding career for many (Santiago 2010). Many specializations require advanced degrees in nursing, and graduate nursing schools can be extremely competitive, largely due to the low numbers of advanced nursing students who go on to become nurse educators -- without teachers in the schools, not enough new nurses or specialized nurses can be turned out to meet the demand, and this has been a primary cause of the shortfalls seen previously and projected to worsen. Becoming a nurse in today's world enables one to have an impact directly on their patient's lives and indirectly on the whole medical community.

Because nurses are so in demand, tit is very likely that a position tailor-fit to almost any individuals preferences can be found, so long as that individual is willing and able to put in the amount of work and dedication that the standards and ...
