The health-care system is a crucial industry that affects how our country works and how our community functions. The COVID-19 pandemic has showcased the urgent need for health-care workers – making jobs in health care among the most in-demand. These jobs include registered nurses and nurse practitioners.

A lot of young people gravitate towards nursing opportunities because it’s rewarding and offers job security, among many other reasons. Here are some highlights of why health-care jobs are a top career choice for young professionals.

Build meaningful relationships
Health-care careers provide the opportunity every day to make meaningful connections in the workplace that not only make the job more enjoyable, but also builds trust between you and your colleagues and patients. Building meaningful relationships can also lead to mutual appreciation and lifelong friendships.

Make a difference
Health-care workers have the ability to make a difference in each patient’s life and can positively impact the community they serve. They provide patients with education, advocate for them, provide emotional support and increase a patient’s comfort and care. Making a difference in someone’s life can lead to higher job satisfaction and can contribute to overall self-fulfillment and happiness.

Enjoy the benefits
Not only can health-care workers make a big difference in the lives of their patients, but they also get to enjoy great benefits offered by their workplace.

Being a nurse for Indigenous Services Canada means making a difference in a First Nations community, while enjoying competitive wages and benefits such as growth opportunities, health-care coverage and, potentially, living allowances and student-loan forgiveness.
