I am 25, from the Uk and in a well paid job. I am considering becoming a nurse but all the talk about low pay and long hours and really put me off. I already have a degree in science and human biology but the shortest course i'm aware of is a 2 year acclerated course in the UK. I am really worried that the stress of having NO money for 2 years will get to me. I would just like to hear from existing nurses who could perhaps advise me on what nursing is REALLY like. I would like to travel to Oz one day and use my nursing skills there.
I'm very confused and unsure!
