Both my parents are RNs too, so discussions can get interesting.
My dad does ortho, and likes what he does...he'd like to see me go to medical school so he can work for me, hehehe.
My mom used to do med-surg, got extremely burned out, and told me my senior year, "It's not too late to do something else."
She works in an office now, and likes it better. She would be supportive of me getting out of nursing, but is supportive of me staying in as well.
Boyfriend is well-trained by my rantings. He actually seems to understand!
He believes nurses are over-worked, underpaid, and not respected enough...etc...
Friends in general don't know anything about healthcare, nor do they really care. They would probably adopt the attitude of "just leave."
