Before I started my research on the internet, I went to written sources. I went to the Paul Breaux Middle School Library and checked out a book on careers in healthcare. I found education information in that book.

In this project, I have learned many things about nurses. I learned that Florence Nightingale, one of the very first nurses, was a nurse for only 3 years of her whole life.

I have learned so much from this project like that there are millions of registered nurses in the United States. I think I chose this career because I enjoy making people feel better.

I have also learned that in 1846 the first hospital training school for nurses, the Institute for Protestant Deaconesses, was established in the town of Kaiserwerth, Germany. Thank you to my team member Mia for informing me of this fact.

I learned the job opportunities for nurses are excellent, although they can vary in different areas of the world. I believe this is because people are not taking care of themselves as well.

In my research, I learned that the first nurse to earn a nursing diploma in the United States was Linda Richards in the year 1873. That makes me wonder who the first nurse to earn a nursing diploma in the entire world is.

Of these, approximately 144,200 are nurse practitioners, 69,000 are clinical nurse specialists, 14,600 are both nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists, 13,700 are nurse midwives, and 32,500 are nurse anesthetists.

I have found some interesting facts about nurse. Some of those facts are that the ratio of nurses to doctors is 4:1, 49 of the 50 states of the U.S. allow nurses to prescribe medication to patients, and a nurse that works more than 12 hours a day is more likely to make errors than those who work 8-10 hour shifts. Others facts are that nurses make up the largest healthcare population and to be in the nursing career requires state and the nation's approval. The nursing profession provides 2.5 million jobs and it is a job that is and will be needed in the future.

I have learned the salary of a nurse varies a lot. It could be $30,000 or $125,000. Which means, the better you are and the more experienced you are, the more money you will make.

I have discovered that nurses can specialize in different things such as working in the operating or emergency room, pediatrics, psychiatric, and more. A pediatric nurse cares for children while an anesthesia nurse helps sedate the patient for surgery.
