Hi, after many years of "wanting" to be a nurse and not doing much to accomplish that I goal, I am finally in that state of mind that enough is enough and if this is what I want then time time is now.....get it together! Now with that being said, I hate certain aspects of my job (not all) but I am extremely unhappy! I am now working towards pre reqs to apply for nursing school
, which upon graduation will help me to provide a better living for myself and my family. I have always wanted to be a nurse since I was a little kid and every job I've ever held was in a Hospital or Dr. office setting. Being that the economy is not so good I dont recommend you quit a job that you consider to be a good one. Every night I go to work I feel like walking right back out the door! I would like to quit but I would have to find another one first. Maybe you could try volunteering at the hospital or a nursing home to get a feel for what nursing is like? One day observing in the ER will be exciting but of course the nurses are going to put their best foot forward as to not give you any bad impressions and I just feel like you really wouldnt get a feel for nursing in that way. If you have family support and can afford to go to Nursing school, why not? I wish you well!
