Rural Nurses work in isolated areas with patients who have limited access to healthcare. A Rural Nurse typically works in critical care nursing, trauma, labor and delivery, as well as in typical nursing duties like attending to patients who are sick or injured. There’s a chance you could be the primary care giver of an entire community, so becoming a Nurse Practitioner would be helpful. Many nurses find this field especially rewarding due to the fact that often times patients will be neighbors, family members, close friends, and generally people they are already very familiar with.
