Dear Fellow Writers, Currently I am at college in an RN to BSN program. Have been a nurse for about six years and worked in many areas. Lately and for some time now, I've been really unhappy in the nursing profession and have expressed a desire to go to medical school; however, my nursing advisors at college think its absurd for me to think of something like that and are trying really hard to discourage me. They are even using my past poor grades and my age of 30yrs. as evidence to not bother thinking of doing medicine. They are also suggesting to become a nurse practitioner, but I am still unfazed in my quest to become an MD. What should I do? Follow my dreams? Or succumb to the continuous onslaught of insults and discouragements? And is it even possible with my age at 30? What do you guys out there think?
