I initially wanted to go into education to teach elementary school, but I do not want to be stupid and obtain that degree and then wonder why I do not have a job. I do not really believe that it matters what state you are in - education is on the rocks. But when it comes to what I am truly passionate about , it is education. Unfortunately, passion doesnt pay bills! So my first year of community college I pretty much took general courses for education, so I didnt take any biology classes. Well lately Ive been feeling a thing for nursing and I'll admit its mostly for job prospects, but I also believe I would like it simply because I enjoy helping people and I typically handle stressful situations well. But in the end - NO , nursing is not what calls me.
I am still thinking about changing to nursing but I have to catch up on all the biologys that I hadnt taken the first 2 semesters. So Im stuck trying to think whether to go to a community college and get my adn, or just stick it out and get the BSN. I feel like with going to school at Wallace Community College they will help place me, (almost all graduates get jobs comming from their nursing program) or I could just wait and hope to get accepted into Troy University for next fall. I do notice a lot of jobs saying BSN preferred - but I hear that riftraft has been around for awhile.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated - Im just feeling like I cant win when it comes to education and my future..
