Hi all who will listen!
I have literally made myself sick with anxiety over this. After graduating with a non-nursing degree, I worked for a year and realized that what I really want is to work with women, babies, and children. I want to be a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and Midwife. I am already almost 24 years old and by the time I reached this goal, I would be what - 35? If that young, indeed. But that's not really what concerns me. It seems that everyone I talk to about nursing is wanting to be a NP, so would that mean that by the time I'm done - we'll all have NPs and be staff nurses anyway? Isn't this a valid concern. I want to reach my goal so badly, but it all seems so impossible.
