While standing in line yesterday to register for LPN I struck up a conversation with an RN who said I should forget nursing. She said she's getting out after 10 years, nursing has gotten dangerous with a staff shortage and she's had it. Needles to say I was wondering if I should get out of line and I was certainly discouraged. I know I will probably encounter all kinds of roadblocks like this. Anyone with the same attitude as her ? Any comments are appreciated.
please don't let people like this discourage you from starting your new carreer. i remember when i had started college, people would ask what's your major. my response " nursing" people were always saying by the time you graduate the shortage will be over and you wont be able to find a job. now i am RN and i graduate when there is still a shortage and plenty of jobs to choose form. good luck.
