If you knew your career would take its current path?
I have been working in an SNF for almost 2 years and, I'll admit, if I knew this was going to happen, I probably wouldn't have gone to nursing school
. The only job offers I've ever received are from SNFs and home health care, neither of which I had in mind when I signed up for nursing school. But no other opportunities have presented themselves, which makes me wonder if nursing school was worth it, at least for me. Seems like people either have great luck or no luck at all when it comes to job. Anyways, I'm disappointed. What about you? Was nursing school worth it?
Yes, but I would go either direct-entry MSN or straight to NP school. There were some valuable experiences and about $50000 or so financial gain which otherwise would become my student debth, and some of my true and good friends I've made, but still years between BSN and MSN were more negative for me and, should I know it, I would avoid them altogether.
