Today I wanted to share a little information about different types of nurses.  And by this I mean the different nursing career types of registered nurses not the different nursing degrees like LPN, BSN or others.

Different nursing career paths like an ER nurse or a pediatric nurse are sometimes not really thought about when students are first starting out.  So I thought rather than write a lengthy post will dull descriptions of a bunch of different (and too numerable to cite all of them here) types of nurses, that I would provide some good links to videos and other blog post to help you get on your way at looking at nursing careers.
