Customer Service.

You not only deal with the patient's, but the Dr's., family members, co-workers. Everyone has different goals/attitudes. You have to be dedicated to your job. Leadership starts at the top. Be positive.

Getting Experience And Getting Hired.
Registered Nurse (RN):
Hospital nursing is a good way to further your education as a nurse. You can branch out from there. If you know you want to be in a certain area of nursing where it is hard to get hired, try to gain something on it for your resume, while still in school.
