Would you choose nursing as your said career?
I am interested to see the responses from you all.
I would do exactly as I did and seek nursing out as early as I did in my life. Nursing has given me a very secure job, a LOT of satisfaction and taken me to areas in nursing I never thought I would be in.
Yes this lady is well contented and remains in love with nursing.
Funny really because from the moment I could walk and talk I wanted to be a nurse.
I remember cutting up my brother's teddy(I thought he was sick) and took out his voice box. I sewed him up with single black wool stitches. Oops maybe I WAS meant to be a surgeon!! LOL My Mum was NOT impressed but heck I was hahahahaa
So tell your stories and would you 'sign' up again??

I'd have to say no. Though I don't hate my job, if I would have known the reality of the job, I would've maybe studied literature or english. Nursing has done alot for me in terms of being able to take care of myself financially, helping me to mature, learning how to deal with negative situations and/or people in a healthy way, appreciate my life, friends, family......and my health. At the same time, the working environment and politics, being short staffed and having lots of high acuity patients can be extremely draining emotionally,physically, and mentally. But I am learning how to cope. I do plan on going PRN at my current medsurg/tele job in late June and maybe get a part time position in an OB area........so I can see something different. I am trying to make the best out of it.........but truthfully I'd rather have less money than be miserable like I am alot of the time. I know that sounds bad but it is true.
