So last a few months back I decided to go back to school for a BSN to become an RN.
And now I must rant for a moment....
Right now I am sooo miserable in my current job, I can hardly stand to get up and go to work everyday, but do it anyways and do it well. I work in a commission based sales major chain department store. We are expected to open all these credit cards and sell $1000's of dollars of merchandise everyday, even the economy sucks and it's almost impossible to do.
The only real pleasure I get is when I truly help out someone that was having foot problems or lower back problems (example: last week I fitted a young girl with Down's Syndrome into a pair of shoes that fit her better than any pair she had ever owned, and she sent me a thank you email to our HR dept). But my management could not care less about that kind of stuff, they only want to see big numbers.
Sorry, I just needed to vent, I'm sure there is someone who understands what it's like to be miserable in a career they hate.
Onto my question:
I have no medical experience beyond volunteering at a nursing home in high school. I plan to start nursing school in the spring, so what are some options to get my foot in the door? Should I try to enter a CNA training program? Or are there other options?
