This is my first message on here so it's all new to me! I've enjoyed reading everyone's postings and share a lot of the same feelings and ideas with many. I am a students soon to graduate with an Elementary Education degree, next Fall...I almost switched majors to Nursing this past Fall but chose not to because I was so close to getting my degree already. The idea of Nursing is still in my head and I wonder and think about it off and on! What should I do? I have so much $ taken out in loans from prior school already (that wouldn't stop me necessarily...) and am not sure if I feel like I want to teach. I love children, and love to work with them, but am scared to teach and create the plans/units for that. Plus, the pay is not that great for teachers. I know, you should do what makes you happy no matter what and $ shouldn't matter, to a certain extent. I am interested in Nursing but afraid of all you have to learn and being in school longer. I would like to hear some good advice please.
Also, if anyone knows some good Nursing schools or programs in Hawaii let me know, I know of only 2 schools here, UH and HPU. Thank you!
