Hey everyone. This is my first post here. I am a chemistry major in college. I once wanted to be a nurse, but then I wanted to be a doctor, and so on. Now that I'm majoring in chem, I know I have a lot more choices to choose from. The reason I am posting here is because I want everyone to give me their input on what I should do (or what would be a good choice to do) after I graduate with my degree in chem. I really like the idea of going into Forensic Science, and with a chem degree, that would not be a bad idea. Anyways, I thought since there are SOOOO many intelligent, wise nurses out there
, you all could help me. Thanks again, and have a great day!!

1) you would have very LITTLE opportunity to use specialized chemistry skills and information in nursing.
2) what do your science peers do when they have finished their chemistry training and education? the drug industry? oil/plastics? what kinds of jobs do they get? look into those areas for a more likely match for you than nursing.
3) many universities (and most community colleges) offer free career testing and counseling. this might be a more useful avenue for you to explore than simply looking at one career possibility after another.
