Hello all! I am relatively new to this site. I remember growing up I wanted to be a pediatrician or a nurse but my mom had told me nurses work long hours and your dealing with sick people so that derailed me. When I got to college I opted to go the Teacher route and received an associate in Early Childhood education. Now I am in a four year college, and I am in the speech program but pediatric nursing/ labor and delivery is my calling. I have a 9 month old son, and I would really like advice from moms with children on my situation. I would really love to go into a field where I will enjoy working and that is nursing. Right now I am a teacher assistant and even though I enjoy the kids, I dislike the politics in schools.
