I have been doing a lot of research about becoming an RN. I'm hoping that you will all help me out a little bit. I'm looking for answers to so many questions to give me a clear picture of what I will be getting myself into.
I am 32 years old, and have never attended college...I'm a bit fearful! I've thought about this sporatically in the past year, but am now seriously considering RN as a career. Now that I may start a family, I feel much more serious about choice of career and effect on my family life. I'm a caring, outgoing, helpful, friendly person and feel that my choice as an RN would give me the opportunity to work in such a variety of environments.
Please tell me about nursing...
The ups, downs...pro's, cons...preferred nursing areas...what to expect and not expect...advice that I could use before I begin my path to this career.
Also, if I only want to work part time as an RN, is it still worth the time, money and energy I will put into to my education?
Any feedback will be helpful and so appreciated!!
