I'm currently a university student pursuing a BA in Sociocultural Anthropology however I've been doubting my intentions in getting this degree (it's not the most useful degree and it's just an easy Bachelors really despite the fact that it's highly interesting to me personally) and think I may be better suited for a nursing degree (more of a challenge and more direction for careers. Also, I'm certain I would enjoy it, I have this passion that I recently discovered for helping people improve themselves). My questions for students of nursing and nurses alike: have any of you had the challenge of decided on a BA or a BSN? If so did you drop the BA path in favor of the BSN?
This indecision is eating me up. I have a year and a half left to finish this BA after three years at Community College but once I'm done with it I think I'd like to continue with school for a BSN otherwise I can stop this schooling, go back to Community College, finish pre-reqs, and then wait to get into nursing school
. Both would take about the same amount of time but would it be advantageous to finish this degree and then continue for the BSN?
I'm hoping there are other students/nurses who have gone through this and can give me advice and explain the ups and downs they had on whichever path they chose. Honestly, any life lessons or things you'd do differently and are willing to share will be very helpful and so much appreciated!
A little addition, I'd like to go abroad as a nurse at some point as well (as can be deduced from my passion for Anthropology I'm highly interested in other cultures/languages).
This was likely far too much information, but as a student I can't help but wonder what the future will bring and how to approach it. Thanks so much for any advice!
