About the Quiz

Please note that this quiz is not a guarantee of anything. It doesn’t guarantee you’ll be successful in nursing school or as a nurse.

There are way too many variables involved in deciding whether or not being a nurse is right for you. 

Instead, this quiz and this article are more of a starting point in that discussion.

Discussion

If you’ve taken the quiz you’ve gotten one of two answers.

Depending on which answer you got it’s possible you’re now feeling discouraged.

I hope that’s not the case because when trying to figure out if you should become a nurse there’s a lot to look at and think about.

For instance one of the questions I asked above has to do with your ability to manage stress. 

While that is an important trait of a good nurse it’s important to note that not all nurses work in high-stress environments.

On the contrary many work in low-stress nursing jobs.

So while many jobs in nursing are stressful you can most definitely find some that aren’t.
