A nurse is one who helps us stay healthy. If you are a nurse, you can work with a doctor. You may work in a hospital, a clinic, a doctor’s office, a school or in people’s homes.

A nurse does many different jobs. You make sure people eat a healthy diet, give medication and treatment, change bedding, and help people understand how to stay healthy.

You also give shots, take blood and make sure everything is clean so that no germs are spread. Some nurses wear scrubs, a special uniform, to work.

To be a nurse, you need to go to nursing school. This can take two to four years. Nurses earn from $35,000 to $84,000 a year.
