Hello everyone. First off, a little info about myself: I am 25, and currently enrolled in a RN program at a local CC. This will be my first degree if I complete the program. Before this, I only worked odd jobs with no direct goals towards a career. I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life so to speak, and I figured getting a degree in something I did not really love would be a waste of time and money. Ironically, this is essentially the situation im in now even though I tried to avoid it. When I started taking classes a few years ago I knew I wanted to work in healthcare in some fashion. I explored different options, and decided on a nursing program not really knowing what I was getting into. At worst, I figured I could get my RN and this would give me exposure to the healthcare field and provide me with a decent paycheck when I finish. Hell, I might even grow to love it. Fast forward to now and I am really not very happy with where I am. I don't really like nursing, but the practical side of me says I should keep going. The one great thing that has come out of this whole nursing experience has been my exposure to the role of the doctor. When I am at the hospital on a nursing clinical, I become jealous when I see all the cool stuff the attendings, residents and medstudents get to do every day. On the other hand, the practical side of my brain knows this is a very long road to take. Plus, I will have at least two c's from nursing school when I graduate. Ive done the calculations and I would have to make straight A's the rest of my undergraduate studies in order to be competitive(3.8 gpa). Anyway, I am sorry for the rant. Im hoping some of you have been in similar situations and can give some solid advice.
