Today while I was volunteering at the hospital, one of the male nurses came up to me and told me that I don't want to be a nurse! He said that I would have to take a bunch of !@#$ from men who aren't my husband. I'm already not that great in school and if you tell me that this is something that I don't want to do, then I might not even try! But nursing is something that I have wanted to do for a long time and I love just being at the hospital (my family thinks I'm crazy!
) . Why would this nurse say something like that to me? It seems that nurses are very short these days and they would want to encourage all the help that they can get...
I just thought it was a little strange. *sigh*

All of my co-workers know of my goal to be an RN. I have had a few say to me flat out "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD don't do it!!!" and others have said "Are you sure you want to do that?" and I have had others say "Go for it."
I know that nursing is what I want to do with my life, and no one can take that away from me. I am my own person, and If I become a nurse and find out that nursing is indeed not for me, then I will quit! I will do something else.
Don't give up, er we'll have to smack yer butt!! :P :chuckle. Follow your dreams!
