Lillian:  I’d like to become a nurse like you. I would have a great bedside manner.

Amos:  It’s a difficult job, but I like it. I’m a registered nurse, but there are a lot of different types of nurses. If you’re willing to get an advanced degree, you could become a clinical nurse specialist or a nurse practitioner.

Lillian:  I don’t think I want to spend a lot of time in school.

Amos:  Then you just need a little more training after your bachelor’s degree. You can be a registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, emergency room nurse, operating room nurse, critical care or intensive care nurse, or a home care nurse.

Lillian:  Well, I dropped out of college. I just couldn’t hack it.

Amos:  Hmm, then you might want to consider becoming a certified nursing assistant. You’ll still need to go through a training program, though, and to become certified.

Lillian:  That still sounds like a lot of studying.

Amos:  You do want to work in nursing, don’t you?

Lillian:  I do, but I thought all I’d have to do is serve meals, talk to the patients, and make them comfortable. That’s what they do on TV.

Amos:  Then my advice to you is to become an actor and play a nurse on TV. I think that might be the closest you’re going to get to the nursing profession.
