How to Become a Medical Cannabis Nurse

As knowledge around the benefits of medical cannabis spreads throughout the states, the demand for nurses educated in the industry is growing. Most states have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, but the nurses that are well-versed in the ways it can be used are limited. There’s never been a better time to begin a career as a medical cannabis nurse.

Many experienced nurses are unsure about embarking on this career path as there is still much to learn about this new medicine. For that reason, choosing to specialize in medical cannabis means you will be able to find a job quickly and be ahead of the curve when it comes to knowledge. Even once you have your nursing degree, you will need specialized training that fully dives into the subject of medical cannabis and the laws around it so you can serve your patients to the best of your abilities.
