Population In The U.S.
The population in the U.S. would vary from about 40,000 o 42,000 jobs.
Future & Why I Pickeed This Career.
OB-nurses has a very long uture because, if there were none of them, half of these infants woldn't be born correctly. OB-nursing is one of the best jobs, as my opinion. How would you give birth without a OB-nurse ? Home Birth is another opiton , but you will still need a nurse to be in the presence. Having a OB-nurse around is very good, not only for us, but for the infants also. I am very good at encouraging others, and giving good advise. The Best part of becoming a OBGYN is delivering newborns into this world, and knowing that the first hands to bring in the infant, is yours, and that is the best feeling ever.
Why Would You Choose This Job ?
Being a nurse to me, helps the nation. You should choose Nursing over anything else. Why ? Beause, it helps so many people, and can change someone's life in an instant.
Why I Chose This Job & What Makes Me Fit ?
I chose to be a OB-Nurse because, you are bringing someone else in this world, and I just love helping people out the need, and to know that I will either help or save someones life makes me want to start working quicker.
