Hi guys!! This is my first post ever.. I've never joined a forum before, but I really need some feedback and words of encouragement. Im currently doing my pre requisites to transfer to Nova (hopefully!!) I am only missing three classes. BUTTTT lately Ive been really really entertaining the thought of becoming a Psychiatrist.. heres the thing.... I am a 30yr old mother... time and money are a huge factor for me. I currently work as a server 3 days a week because of school and i manage, but lately I've been feeling too old for the job. i know a couple pharmacists and students that start working at CVS pharmacy which was what i planned to do, but they all hate it. I spoke to my mom, and she told me i should do nursing because it is faster than pharmacy, she even said i could focus on becoming psychiatric nurse once i become an RN.. anyways... im just so lost and confused! i guess my questions are.. 1.Would i be able to start working in the pharmacy or psychiatric field now? while i am still attending school? 2. What are your thoughts on changing pharmacy to nursing to focus on psychiatry? THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS!
