I am thinking about going into nursing, but I'm not sure which route to take. I also want to hear people's comments about the profession because I want to make a good, sound career choice since I've already made one career mistake.
Here's the story. I am 22 and complete my BA in Family Studies, Psychology minor, last May. I thought I wanted to be a speech pathologist, but after my first semester of grad school, I've found that sitting in a little room with one person hour after hour is not my thing. My undergrad degree does not qualify me for much without going on to get a Masters and I don't really want to do any kind of counseling.
Nursing interests me because I love helping people and providing a useful service. I also like the idea of not being stuck behind a desk all of the time. Biology has always been one of my favorite topics, so I think I will enjoy that aspect of it. Since I already have my BA, I don't know if I want to go on for my BSN (3 more years), but it seems to hold the most prospects if I do decide to get my MSN or PhD someday. (I probably will) I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks all.
