  • Nurse Practitioner

    Nurse practitioners are advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) with additional responsibilities including prescribing medication, examining patients, diagnosing illnesses, and providing treatment, much as physicians do. Nurse practitioners are educated and trained to provide health care services, such as the diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and chronic conditions.


    Salary range: $73,267-$113,066 per year

    A NICU RN works with premature and sick infants in the neonatal intensive care unit of a hospital. Your duties in this career are similar to that of a registered nurse in any other department. You monitor the progress of a newborn and oversee the operation of any equipment involved in their medical care. Some individuals work in private homes and tend to an infant after their discharge. The work is full-time with shifts around the clock. It is both emotionally and physically demanding. Most positions require a bachelor’s degree, and you must have a license in the state in which you work. Certification through an organization like the National Association of Neonatal Nurses is desirable.

  • RN

    An RN, short for Registered Nurse, works closely with doctors to provide patient care for illnesses and injuries. RNs are often the first medical professional the patient sees when entering a health care facility. As an RN, you can ask the patient questions and document their health history, but you are not allowed to diagnose patients; after the doctor or other supervising health care professional has determined what problem needs to be treated, you help administer treatment. Your job duties may include administering medications, checking patient vital signs, and charting medical records. RNs also advise patients and families about at-home care for medical conditions as well as disease prevention.

  • Class A Truck Driver

    A Class A truck driver job refers to the category of commercial driver’s license (CDL) needed to operate a large vehicle for the job. Usually, employers seek candidates who already have their Class A license, and can legally drive and tow a truck over 10,000 pounds. Those who have a license to drive a regular car or a license to drive a smaller truck will need to acquire a Class A level license before applying.

  • LPN

    A Licensed Practical Nurse, or LPN, is a Nurse who performs patient care and administrative tasks. They work under the supervision of Registered Nurses and doctors. Some of the responsibilities of an LPN include, administiring medications, changing bandages, monitoring and documenting the patients health, supervising nursing aids, and providing emotional support to patients and their families. LPNs generally work in traditional health care settings like hospitals, nursing homes, and group homes. They can also work in private homes if needed.
