Hi everyone, i figured id make my first post a good one and just go right ahead and and start a thread.. (omg, that rhymed
Anyhow, my name is Andrea and im 21 years old. As of litterally 45 minutes ago, I've decided to pursue nursing (RN-BSN and eventually to MSN) My husband was recently accepted to Podiatry school in Miami, at Barry University, and Im close to graduating with my BS in Business Administration. Our "plan" was for me to obtain my MBA from Barry University, in hopes of managing our practice, which would be geared towards sports podiatry/ wellness & spa.
My husband woke up today and realized his heart is not in podiatry (he got blinded by $ signs) and that his passion still lays in nutrition and excersize and is currently applying to physical therapy schools in the southeast.
His sudden change got me thinking about where my "true" passion lay, and i realized it was no where near being an entrepreneur. Whilst I know that i have a natural inclination towards business, I dont find it fullfilling or rewarding in any aspect other than monetary.
I love children, and spent my first year in undergrad working towards elementary education because of this. I was then turned away from it for the same reasons my husband turned towards dentistry, podiatry, MD/DO school... the money.
Ive finally come to terms with the fact that I need to be in a career where i feel great fullfilment by helping others directly, and am directly involved with babies.
HOWEVER, the 24 need of nursing care is what concerns me, because I intend to be 110% there for my family, and am worried about jeopardizing my family life for my career... and would like some feed back from current neonatal or pediatric nurses regarding this topic.
Sorry for the essay! (i hope people actually reply to this thread)
